Rita is the original member of our management team and has been with RYAH since the mid- eighties. Increasingly, Rita’s role has become “behind the scenes” although she still maintains strong ties with many long term clients and often can be seen spoiling pets that have been admitted to the hospital (she has a special soft spot for terriers). She is a Certified Veterinary Practice Manager and a graduate of Purdue University’s Veterinary Management Institute and has an extensive background in science and business management. Rita’s main focus is on financial management and strategic planning for the hospital. She is always looking for new ideas and concepts and the RYAH team share in this vision. Her goal is for RYAH to exceed all your expectations and to provide you and your pet a superior experience and offer the best and most current veterinary care possible. Rita’s family includes her husband Frank, son, Grant and daughter-in-law Allia and son Derek who is a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine Student Class of OVC 2019 at the University of Guelph. A true terrier fan, Rita’s family would not be complete without at least several Terriers: “Hecktor” the Cairn Terrier, “Razzle” the Border Terrier. In her spare time she is an avid soccer and hockey fan and loves to travel.
