Rita Wright Oujesky

Vice President, Investments
Financial Advisor

Rita’s career began in 1986 as a sales assistant/secretary with E.F. Hutton. Becoming increasingly more interested in a financial advisory role, she set her sights on becoming Series 7, 65, 63, and 31 securities licensed and life and annuity insurance licensed. Rita then partnered with a Senior Financial Advisor and Vice President at the firm in 1987. Three years later, she relocated to North Richland Hills, Texas.

“I love talking with clients and assisting them with their current and future investment needs,” Rita said. “I treat my clients like I would want to be treated if I didn’t do this job.”

Rita joined Merrill Lynch in Fort Worth and Las Colinas, Texas, in 1991, and then UBS Financial Services in 2003, prior to joining Raymond James in 2009.

There are times when Rita must tell clients something they don’t want to hear. “It’s my job to make sure my clients understand risk versus return, and that investing is a marathon, not a sprint,” Rita said. “Specializing in financial and retirement planning, my goal is to meet their goals and objectives with the least amount of risk.”

Rita graduated with a BBA in Petroleum Land Management from Oklahoma University in Norman. She relocated to Austin with Ray Oujesky, a graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of Law School that same year.

Originally from Oklahoma, Rita and her husband, Ray, now live in North Richmond Hills, Texas. Ray is an attorney with Kelly Hart & Hallman LLP Law, of Fort Worth. They have two children, Madeline Grace Oujesky Prater, and Jillian Claire Oujesky. Madeline works for the City of Southlake in their Planning and Development Department. Rita’s youngest daughter, Jillian, is enrolled as a Graduate student at the University of Texas Health Science Center (UT Health Houston) Public Health program in Epidemiology.
