~meet Rita...the Artist...
"I have told my voice students for many years that there are thousands of people who can sing a beautiful song, but few and far between are those who can so move your heart that you forget where you are for the three to four minutes of the song.  Likewise, there is a step greater than a speaker or trainer who can offer a powerful, innovative presentation...that is the speaker/trainer who can reach in and squeeze your heart causing you to forget where you are for the moment and SEE yourself where you want to be!  This one quality completely determines what you take away from the meeting and how it affects the rest of your life! In fact, this one quality completely determines what you take away from any class you will ever attend. The person who works with their hands only is a laborer; the person who works with their hands and their head is a craftsman; the person who works with their hands, their head and their heart is an artist."
