Since 1982 she has enjoyed her own, very successful, performing arts school teaching private voice, public speaking, leadership, personal development, wellness, motivation, stage presence and stress/anger management. She has trained hundreds, from ages 6 to 90, from all walks of life. Rita's company captured 35%+ of the market share for over ten years. She designed and directed yearly revues with casts of up to 120 including singing, speaking, dancing and drama! Six years she performed at Carnegie Hall in New York with her choirs. She is a recognized performer both on stage and screen, with 442 videos on YouTube hosting over 134,000 views.

Speaking Topics
  • Retirement Living

    I have spent the last few years in Research and multi-level Employment in the Retirement Community Industry. My discoveries have been very enlightening and some quite disturbing. I now serve as a consultant for those who are ready to make a decision about retirement community living, leading them from the initial thought process to move-in day. My teaching and keynotes on this subject include a list of questions that everyone should ask before choosing a retirement community, and what the answers should be.

  • The Tenacious Woman

    The character, disposition and presentation of woman is MOST of the time misrepresented, both in the world’s eyes and in the church’s eyes. Since the beginning of time, woman was supposed to be strong, tender, powerful, kind and compassionate. Many times the world wants her to only represent the strong, powerful side of her nature and the church wants her to only represent the tender, kind and submissive side of her character. Neither of them are accurate. As is shown, not only in Proverbs 31, but in numerous other places throughout the Word, woman is a powerful individual, without taking on male characteristics.

  • Vocal Health

    When the reed of a clarinet is damaged, it can be replaced. When the vocal cords are damaged, you live with them for the rest of your life! We only get one set of vocal cords. Improper care of the voice can lead to permanent damage, and the damage can come in varying degrees. After abuse, many times the voice is still usable, but the quality is very raspy and the notes are difficult to produce. If you are ever hoarse from over-singing, you are putting your vocal cords at risk. Since I made that promise 30 years ago, I have not been hoarse from over-singing one time. A by-product of a cold or flu is sometimes hoarseness. This is different. If it is not from abuse, the vocal bands will heal. I had a very good friend who was in an elite choir with me. She was young and thought she was invincible. She really abused her voice one semester. After visiting the larynologist she found that she had nodules on her vocal cords. They tried to mend her problem with medication, but to no avail. They then removed the nodules by surgery and her voice was never the same. It is also very dangerous to use throat spray or lozenges that will deaden the pain. When there is pain, that is your body telling you that you are entering a danger zone. To deaden that pain is to completely ignore the body’s warnings and this could render you a major problem.

  • Renewal Living

    This process enlivens every aspect of our being, not just one part. Once we learn and understand how to engage our mind into renewal every day, we can come closer to a clear understanding of why we are here, what we are supposed to accomplish and what are our distinct gifts. Some people call it authentic living, which is accurate, but I call it Renewal Living because everything on this earth is a process. Renewal Living speaks to that process. Each day we discover new thoughts, new patterns, new dreams, new insights, new vision and new direction with slight turns in our road. We must choose to renew our minds toward these new discoveries, every day, to make or journey authentic; therefore, we must engage in Renewal Living to create an authentic life.
