Ruth was born and raised in Vista, California, and found her calling working with children from a young age. She has assisted in various after school programs throughout North County including ASES, and GEAR UP prior to working with HLA. Ruth has the deep-rooted desire to help assist students grow, develop, and achieve their goals, both academically and spiritually. She knows that God has had plans for her from an early age, and feels compelled to fully pursue them.
Ruth became apart of the HLA family in 2016, and feels blessed to be part of such an amazing organization and make a big impact in the new generation of youth in the Oceanside community. She has an adorable daughter, who we consider apart of our HLA family as well.
