Ruth has been involved with IOE for many years and has seen the organisation from a number of aspects: as a sibling of a sister with a disability, a volunteer, a support worker and a recreation leader. Having accessed IOE family support programs for many years, Ruth wanted to give back to the IOE community and becoming a board member seemed a natural progression.
A primary school teacher, with a Bachelor of Education and Diploma of Auslan, Ruth is passionate about education and learning. She loves having discussions and appreciating other people’s perspectives and enjoys travel and seeing similarities between cultures as well as differences.
As a new mother to a beautiful daughter, learning about motherhood is Ruth’s latest learning curve.
