In 2016, Ruth was approached by The Sleep Forum, a news site all about sleep, to join their team. Ruth, a business development professional with a BBA in Marketing from Pace University, jumped at the opportunity.
Ruth’s passion for the topic of sleep was inspired by her daughter who was diagnosed with narcolepsy nine years ago. Ruth has been educating herself on the topic of sleep for many years and has learned even more from living with someone with a sleep disorder like narcolepsy. Having a secret talent (and enjoyment with) writing since a young age, moving into Editor position at The Sleep Forum was a natural for Ruth. Ruth and her team of five people, located throughout the USA, have grown The Sleep Forum into a news site that is noticed on apple news, google news and social media. Ruth is excited to report via a weekend newsletter or podcasting to The Sleep Forum audience of over 80,000 worldwide. Ruth is an enthusiastic supporter of Wake Up Narcolepsy and the work they do raising funds for research and awareness for the disease.
