Rita is a true local – born and raised in East Vancouver (where she still lives today) – but has been travelling the world since she was just a baby. Her first trip to Fiji began what would become a lifetime of exploring cultures and worldviews that differed from her own. This inspired her to become a host to international students, to volunteer her time to many worthy causes, and ultimately to pursue a career in social work.
Her love of travel culminated in an “Eat, Pray, Love” trip to India and Dubai – she saw beauty everywhere. It was on this trip that she decided to marry her love for helping others with her passion for beauty. When she returned to Vancouver, she set her sights on a career in medical aesthetics, which ultimately led her to the team at Project Skin MD. Rita now spends her days helping others feel like the best, most beautiful versions of themselves.
Rita is a passionate foodie with a love for spices, so when she’s not with the team at PS, you can almost certainly find her experimenting in the kitchen.
PS. Rita has 2 fur babies—the loves of her life—a Maltese/Shih Tzu mix, and a Shih Tzu.
