Born and educated in the North of England, Ruth read English and Theatre Studies at Lancaster University before settling in London, the city she loves to call home.

After working in Internet services during the ‘90s, Ruth established one of the first successful new media creative agencies in the UK. She advised many organisations, both private and public sectors, on brand communications and went on to develop business for several high profile design agencies.

During her working life Ruth developed a daily yoga and meditation practice (Nichiren Buddhism and Astanga Yoga) which eventually led to her training with Professor Gordon Farmer MD in the integration of Cold Laser technology with traditional Eastern medicine. She qualified as a Therapeutic Laser Practitioner in 2014 and now runs a natural health practice in Harley Street, London. In 2017 Ruth achieved Distinction for a Masters Degree in the Traditions of Yoga and Meditation at SOAS (University of London).

Ruth is currently writing her second book, the sequel to Dragon King’s Daughter and continues to research the symbiotic relationship between spiritual wellbeing and its positive impact on physical and mental health.

Ruth holds a Diploma in Therapeutic Laser from the UK Institute of Therapeutic Laser Practitioners (UKITL) and holds Training Consultant for Therapeutic Laser accreditation. She is also a member of The British Medical Laser Association and the Complementary Medical Association.
