ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Rita founded Happy Catalyst to facilitate connections and collaboration between people and the life changing resources they need.
After leaving the corporate world of business development and marketing, Rita reinvented herself to focus more on the development of individuals and groups. Utilizing her natural abilities to easily connect with others, while leveraging her experience and skills, Happy Catalyst was born in 2016.
Utilizing her unique perspective and ability to see potential and opportunity in any situation, Rita was able to connect to people on a personal level and build a rapport that evolved into deep personal relationships. She has used her abilities to bridge the gap between life-changing resources and the needs of people experiencing challenging circumstances in their personal lives and/or organization.
Rita's early adulthood background included challenging situations such as divorce and being a single parent without a diploma or GED. That led her to rely on a variety of government assistant programs like food stamps, HUD, and family support. Through a JTPA Program, Rita was able to earn a Bachelor's Degree in Corporate Communications and Marketing in 1998. She uses these relatable experiences to show others how they can rise from stressful, and hopeless conditions to a thriving, secure livelihood.
Today, Rita's purpose and passion lies in helping individuals and groups push through life's challenging circumstances by using tools, techniques, her experience and that of others, in mutually beneficial ways. Through Happy Catalyst she facilitates collaborative network groups and experiential workshops that include entrepreneurship, women, parenting and single parents, financial literacy, women's self-care, self-development with personality assessment tools, and heart-based networking to name a few.
To empower individuals to connect with each other, to advance (expand, increase) the overall well-being of our community through shared experiences, skills and resources that collectively help make a difference in peoples' lives, businesses and community organizations.
