A Pittsburgh native, Ritter studied at Duquesne University with a major in Literature and a double major in Political Science and Integrated Marketing Communications.

As part of a family of political enthusiasts, Ritter was able to combine her passions for creative writing, the arts, and public service in a career that allows her to build relationships and create strategy every day.
She has worked as a communications specialist for changemaking organizations working to ensure equity, and she advocates change to our political systems.
