Ryta Peschka Outside of Work
Ryta loves cooking and can often be found in the kitchen trying out new dishes to share. She is most at ease at her little trailer by a lake. Here in the warmer months, you can find her sitting on the porch with a cup of freshly brewed coffee, listening to the loons, and watching the hummingbirds at the feeder.
Every summer she rereads a Nancy Drew mystery book from her younger years. She loves to paint, draw and is tackling embroidery.
You can often find her playing or face timing with her young granddaughter.
Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.” – Aristotle
