Hi, I’m Rita! I help nurturing trailblazers craft custom cruise experiences that provide space for their people to spark new ideas, strengthen connections with each other, and transform through world exploration.
I’m so passionate about cruising’s potential to foster community and usher in breakthroughs because I’ve seen (and experienced) it happen first hand. As an unabashed cruising junkie, I’ve sailed on 20+ cruises around the world—many with groups.
On Day One at sea, you’re still strangers, and you're all a little unsure of how this is going to go. But by the final day of the trip, those barriers have broken down, and incredible connections have been forged. When you step on to that ship, you leave all your day-to-day responsibilities behind. You give yourself permission to think differently, and open yourself up to new ideas and approaches.
I’ll combine my creative approach to entrepreneurship with my events management background and deep cruise industry knowledge to create a retreat on the waves that surpasses all your expectations.
They think “leader” is not just a title, but an action. They believe deeply in the potential of their people—and they honor their responsibility to unlock it. They’re not just creating a retreat experience, they’re crafting a legacy.
I boast a special events background, with a degree in hospitality management and experience managing events for some of the largest theme parks in the world.
I’ve earned a Master’s Degree in Non-Profit Management, so I understand what it takes to align budgets, missions, and diverse program needs.
As a former senior labor analyst, I’ve honed the left-brain skills needed to take charge of trip details large and small to make all the puzzle pieces fit.
I’m a certified Master Cruise Counselor through CLIA, the world’s largest cruise industry organization.
I’m going to make you look really good. You bring the vision, I’ll execute all the strategy and manage all the logistics, for an experience that truly wows your group (and you get all the credit, of course!).
