As we continue to build our practice in St. Louis, I look forward to collaborating with project teams and fostering a multi-disciplinary design approach.”

She is remarkably adept at translating clients’ visions, needs and goals into environments that help organizations and people reach new heights.”
A strong belief spaces should create emotional experiences while reflecting the identity and culture of those living and working in them helps Rita connect with clients on a deeper level. She strives to understand the intricacies of their business, brand essence, mission and values, aspirations, and opportunities for how these can be reflected in their space. This engagement process creates the foundation for compelling, informed, and purposeful design concepts that fuel dynamic futures for clients.
