Ruthie’s story is one of intensity, pain, and immense triumph. Recently, she’s had the joy of telling that story and inspiring other people to follow their creative spirit at conferences, workshops, retreats, and schools. She kicked off Nashville’s first-ever Creative Mornings and has also been a featured speaker for the Yellow Conference in Los Angeles. She has presented at events for notable brands such as Amtrak, Story Conference, Plywood Presents, Passion Passport, and Yeah Field Trip.

Asking Ruthie to speak at the Yellow Conference was one of the best decisions we made in 2015. When Ruthie came and spoke at our conference, not only was she inspirational, but she had the entire audience in tears, was voted #1 favorite speaker by our 2015 attendees, and inspired real change in the lives of so many women in our audience.



Ruthie has been given a story that needs to be heard and connects with the soul of audiences. A true story of pain being transformed into joy. When you look into the eyes of Ruthie you will see hope and every community needs what she sees.
