Rita Visser lives in Niagara, but is a northern girl at heart. She grew up in rural Thunder Bay, spending her summers on an island in Lake Superior. She loves to share the tale of her grandpa Mel riding a moose. You may find her strumming her guitar along a body of water, designing stuff for her clients, playing with her child, or recording someone's life story as a personal historian.
