Rita is currently a full-time student at San Francisco State University, working to complete her bachelor’s degree after an 18-year hiatus from her initial progression at the University of Minnesota. She anticipates graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration – Decision Sciences, spring 2016.
With a long-time interest in bookkeeping, Rita is grateful for the opportunity she received to transition into the realm of non-profit and the finance side of administration. She comes to MSC with over 20 years of administrative experience within the private sector in the venture capital and executive search industries.
A Minnesota native, her firm relocated her to New York in late 2000. Eight years later, Rita decided to take the biggest leap of her life –- resigned from her job; downsized her possessions into mini-storage; completed a 108-day solo backpacking adventure through Europe; and upon return, relocated to San Francisco…without a job, a place to live, friends, or ever visiting the Bay Area prior. Rita enjoys cycling, travel, photography and hiking and serves as a Board member for a Minnesota-based company called Sunrise Health Services, Inc.
