She attained a basketball scholarship and pursued her Bachelor’s Degree in the United States at Albany State University. She graduated from ASU and pursued her Master’s Degree at Ohio State and later her Ph. D at Howard University in Washington DC. Her passion has always been the participation of women in politics and their contributions to the development of the Belizean nation. She has published articles in professional and international journals. 

After her studies, Dr. Pitts made the decision to return to Belize and to Port Loyola to be of service to her country. Her education has exposed her to the doctrines of social justice which informs and propels her single mindedness to join in the transformation of her community and city and to join in the development of her Belizean nation.
