Rita is a registered and licensed dietitian with a passion for helping people get well.
Through her younger years as a competitive swimmer, Rita gained a sense of how important a healthy lifestyle is. This notion drove her to pursue a bachelor’s degree in nutrition from University of Houston and then a master’s of science from Texas Woman’s University. Rita has worked at a major Houston hospital seeing inpatients and outpatients with a variety of nutrition related conditions. In addition, Rita works at a Crossfit gym to help everyone from the elite athlete to the weekend warrior improve their nutrition to better their health. It is her belief that there are many ways to be healthy and therefore everyone’s “perfect” diet will look different, which is important to consider when reading the endless and conflicting pieces of diet advice that are presented in the news.Rita lives in Sugar Land with her husband Adam and two young children Benjamin and Dylan. Rita loves a new cookbook and a good documentary about (of course) food. Visit her website to book directly https://connorsrd.com
