About Ruth

Hello Friend!

I’m so glad you’re here!  Although I’d really rather hear about you, I realize you might like to know a little about me, before you choose me as your personal success coach!  So here goes….

My coaching career was born from a deep passion to love and serve women just like you!  Being a woman in today’s fast paced ever changing world can be super challenging can’t it?  Tricky twists and turns can threaten to knock us off course or leave us confused and wondering, “what’s next?”  Having worked in women’s ministry since 1994, it was a natural step for me to add one on one coaching to the workshops, studies, and retreats I facilitate.  My mission is to help you come to know your unique brilliance, and help you develop strategies that empower you to live that brilliance, and have the life you were created for! ….. which blesses the world!

I’m a Certified Life and Strengths Strategies Master Coach and People Acuity Specialist, with additional certifications and licensing in, Effective Communication, Marriage and Family, Boundaries, Spiritual Formation, Strengths Strategies for Optimal Living, Strengths Strategies for Optimal Families, and Faith-based Community Building.  Since I love surrounding myself with amazing human beings I have several professional memberships and I participate in challenging and inspiring thought leader groups, such as, People Acuity and Strengths Strategies, Soar, The International Christian Coaches Association, and Local Women Entrepreneurs Mastermind.

Although my work in women’s ministry and being your personal success coach is truly a blessing, and one of the greatest joys of my life, it’s my faith and my family that get first place priority!  I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for more than 38 years and together we’re working on our legacy, which includes eight incredible kids, six boys and two girls, and eleven grands so far!  I’ve had the privilege of being the primary educator for all these amazing human beings, and I continue to be humbled by the fruits of our time together!  I’m a living, breathing example of the saying, “God doesn’t call the qualified, He qualifies the called!”  Outside of the education of my kids, my own education, and building my business, I cherish the simple things of life.  I delight in being creative and enjoy finding ways to express it.  I LOVE to read, mostly non-fiction, since I love learning new stuff!  My all time favorite thing though,  is to hang out with my people!!  I also love….. “being” over “doing”, simple things, hugs, deep meaningful conversation, brainstorming new ideas and possibilities, bonfires, being outside, camping, traveling to see my out of town peeps, walks in the woods or along the beach, animals of all kinds, creating, dreaming, and I LOVE getting to know and walk with women like YOU!!

My top five strengths are Strategic, Maximizer, Belief, Individualization, and Activator!  I believe in a strengths-based approach to life and would love to get to know you and what makes you unique!   I look forward to hearing from you soon!
