As a journalist and editor in the print industry, she developed an elegant writing style, a keen eye for detail and a strong ability to work to competing deadlines.


Her time in radio added more clarity and punch to her writing, as did speech writing in the Local Government sector.

Ruth has a passion for turning “a sow’s ear into a silk purse” – whether it’s writing in tech-speak, for the art and music world or in the political arena. 

 Before joining The Gap, Ruth worked with…

  • Penrith City Council
  • Fairfax Media
  • ABC Local Radio
  • Glenbrook School of Music

She’s also a singer and flautist, who (if she had three legs) would have one foot in each of the rock, folk and country camps.
