Ruth's most recent position was brand manager at Nestle USA, having specialized in digital and brand communications since 2011.
Ruth holds a Bachelor of Arts in Flute Performance from the University of Southern Mississippi and five years of additional experience in Performing Arts Administration prior to her work as a marketing professional.
Drum and Bugle Corps is a passion for Ruth. Her drumcorps tradition dates back to her father, a band director and co-creator of the WGI World-Class Champion group Odyssey. Her earliest memories were of band trips and rehearsals. Though her performance focus was in orchestras, she grew up with many of the thoughtleaders in the activity around her kitchen table.
As a fan of the marching arts, Ruth strives to make the activity accessible to everyone through storytelling and an inclusive spirit.
