My professional development in the field of domestic violence started at House of Ruth. I am grateful to the women and children who taught me the complexity of abuse. I felt raw emotions in individuals not allowed to express, to think, to feel, and to be true to themselves while in abuse. As they evolved their world became a better place. House of Ruth allowed that to happen. On behalf of the clients and what was not only given to them but to me, I want to give something back. Thanks so much!
