“My hour consultation with Ruby was incredibly rich and useful. I had asked for advice on how to proceed with improving my synagogue’s website. As advised, I had also sent a rather detailed email to Ruby ahead of time, listing specific aspects of the website that I wanted help with, and Ruby was ready to discuss each one with me. I greatly appreciated both her mastery of the subjects and also her ability to help me understand the more technical aspects of what I need to learn. She’s a very good teacher, down to earth, and funny. She gave me many concrete suggestions that I can’t wait to try out. The usefulness of our conversation went way beyond anything that I had imagined ahead of time.” Leslie S. of Temple Emanu-El

Leslie took over her synagogue’s website and brought me aboard to make updates and add functionality. My training as an attorney allows me less ambiguity when it comes to ADA compliance, GDPR, and commerce. Leslie has tasked me to coach her through the process. It’s a unique “pair programming” opportunity for me to really think through the process from Leslie’s perspective to empower her.

“Enthusiastically efficient’ is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Ruby. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ruby for the better part of a year, during which time I supervised her as a volunteer for the Valdez Food Bank. (I knew Ruby from the library for her exceptional customer service in support of my research projects as well as her vibrant preschool storytime program.) Above all, I was impressed with Ruby’s ability to listen to and empathize with the clients and to take quick action on their behalf. And, of course, her singing and her smile really made the distribution hours fly by. Ruby would be a true asset for any position requiring quick thinking and a sense of humor and comes with my heartfelt recommendation.” Dorenda K.

Saturday was distribution day at the Valdez Food Bank. I’d clock in and navigate compliance with the federal grants we received.

I lived in rural Alaska until I left it in the rearview and drove the Alaska Highway in ’19 to relocate to the Seattle area.
