After growing up in Boulder, CO, Ruth chose to attend the University of Puget Sound because of the beauty and activities of the Pacific Northwest and the rigorous academic and music curriculum of the school. A lifelong love of music led her to become a music major, participating in the Adelphian Concert Choir, Voci D’amici and opera theater. Because of all the other opportunities on campus, Ruth also became very active as a tour guide and an orientation leader. After graduating in 2005 with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance, she spent a year volunteering as an AmeriCorps member in the Orting School District. This sparked a love of working with students, and she subsequently attended Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City and graduated with a Master of Arts in Music Education in 2008. She returned to her home state of Colorado to teach music to elementary students for three years. She is thrilled to be back in the lovely Pacific Northwest and at her alma mater. She continues to be an active performer, participating in the Franz Schubert Institute in 2009, a German lieder intensive in Baden bei Wien, Austria, as well as being a soloist and section leader for multiple church choirs, professional and community choirs. Most recently, Ruth was heard performing on the radio station Classical King FM with the esteemed Byrd Ensemble, a vocal group based out of Seattle.
