Ruth joined the GDA team in 2015 as Marianne’s PA and team admin officer. After a 4 month adventure away in Berlin, Ruth is now back with GDA as Community Development Coordinator – working with Isla to support our Drivers for Change network.
Ruth previously worked in France teaching English in secondary schools, and is involved with a number of grassroots campaigns fighting to make Scotland a fairer society.
Outside of work Ruth loves travelling, watching films, cooking incredibly spicy food, and building up her collections of battered second hand books and vintage dresses.
