Currently she works as a Diversity, Equity, Access, and Inclusion consultant for NASA.
Trained as an American Sign Language Interpreter, Ruth's practice is rooted in a pedagogical framework, fundamentally considering the role of language in learning, engagement, and meaning-making. Her work takes the form of education interventions and implementation of strategic initiatives.
