Sister Rita Parent
I was born and raised in Eagle Lake, Maine. I have been a Sister of Mercy for 43 years. I received my B.S. in Food & Nutrition from the University of Maine in Orono, and my M.S. in Nutrition from St. Joseph College in West Hartford, CT.
I worked as Registered Dietitian for several years. I live in South Portland, ME and my time is now occupied as a driver for the local community; a member on committees and boards. I also provide respite one day a week for my sister who’s husband is ill.
