 “One of the things I really admire about Ruth is her quiet understated confidence.  Ruth was an easy choice to be a founding member of the Caron DC Leadership Council and, as usual, she jumped in with a great deal of enthusiasm and really helped us craft our message and call to action.  Importantly, she led us in the process of developing, drafting and finalizing a mission statement used to this day.”
