I am a Development Economist by training and very passionate about the things I engage in . Ruth's Place is affordable but provides value for money. My motto is "do onto others as you would have them do unto you-I pride myself in giving service and value and I want everyone visiting to have a memorable experience. Whether it be through dining, driving around the country, a trip to the beach or just a casual conversation, it should add value to the experience.. I am involved in many local groups-PTA's, AUA Medical School Research Council, The Global Environmental Facility-Small Grants Program, yet i find quality time to spend with my guests and students. People matter to me and I strive to use every moment to bring out the best in people and to share experiences that build up and support relationships.
