Rita is passionate about human performance and keeping her clients in the fight. She became a Physical Therapist after years of frustration with generic physical therapy that did not address the root cause of her own injuries as a competitive track athlete. She transitioned from a career working with Olympic and professional athletes at the University of Arizona (Track and Field, Football, Swimming and Diving) to the US Marine Corps Special Operations Command aboard Camp Lejeune, NC. Her work with tactical athletes focuses on maintaining physical resilience for career longevity.
