We are pleased to welcome Rita Kulaga to Epstein – our new corporate accountant and member of our corporate services group.
Rita received her Bachelor’s in Accounting from Benedictine University (Go Eagles!) and currently lives with her husband in Aurora, but is really excited about the possibility of moving to Chicago or at least closer to the city. You see Rita’s daughter and son are both in college and away from home, a fact that Rita has told us she enjoys. (Rita – if your children ask, we’ll play dumb and tell them you are absolutely heartbroken not having them under your roof!)
Besides relishing a kid-free home, Rita also loves hanging out with her pets; Chance- an adorable husky; and Sweetheart – a lovely cat that she ‘inherited’ when her daughter left for college. Rita also likes shopping and listening to country music (Question Rita – Reba or Carrie?).
Rita and her husband both enjoy biking around their neighborhood and taking short weekend trips. Her favorite places to go to are Galena and Saugatuck, but she can’t wait to take a little longer journey … to Paris!
Rita was also a member of a Volleyball team at one of her previous work places and she hopes she can introduce this idea to her fellow Epsteiners! (Rita – just an FYI – Epsteiner Vicki Bartling is a member of a ‘championship’ level volleyball team already – looks like you guys might make an awesome beach volleyball tandem! Get going now – Rio 2016 is just a little of 13 months away!)
Lastly – welcome to the family Rita, we are very pleased to have you with us!
