“It’s inspiring to see that the benefits world is taking a comprehensive view of well-being. I’m excited to be part of that conversation, particularly in helping people get and stay on a sound financial path.”
Throughout her career, Rita has often led the charge in communicating the link between health and finances. During her 15-plus years as a Communication Consultant with Aon Hewitt, Rita excelled at promoting smart saving, as well as developing profitable partnerships, improving annual enrollment engagement, helping new hires navigate their benefits, and enabling retirement readiness. Her coworkers even dubbed her “Rita Retirement” for her remarkable retirement expertise.
She is particularly known for her ability to break down complex benefits programs into their essential parts so employees can quickly assess why they should participate, and what actions they need to take.
As passionate as she is about ridding the planet of sleep-inducing employee communications, Rita’s interests aren’t confined to the world of benefits. She’s a self-professed “animal nut.” Most weekends, you’ll find her volunteering at her local animal shelter, refining her cat whispering skills.
After having moved frequently as a child, she and her husband have made Southern California—specifically Orange County—their home. A longtime yoga enthusiast, Rita’s also an avid gardener and home DIYer.
