On a personal note, Rita’s passion to transform lives comes from climbing out of her own deep pit of very low self-worth, physical/mental/emotional abuse, self-sabotaging behavior through fear of failure and rejection, emotional eating, and self-destructive relationships. She is very authentic and transparent while filling her audiences and readers with hope, help, humor and heart! Rita is a former Mrs. Nebraska and Mrs. America contestant.
