Ruth Davis

 Experience with Children: 3yrs

Ruth is very excited to be joining the NOW team! She is new to Vermont, Ruth moved here from Maine in June, and has loved everything this beautiful state has to offer. Previously she worked at a pediatric doctors office as a CNA working with a wide range of children, different ages and background, and that opportunity has given me a lot of vital skills in childcare. Ruth is currently a first year student at CCV studying Early Childhood Education. In her free time she loves to spend it outside any chance she can get, if she is not outside Ruth is most likely cuddling with her cats while crafting up a storm. Another hobby Ruth enjoys and grew up with, something she holds close to her heart, is singing and playing along with her guitar and ukulele. Ruth is truly excited for this opportunity to work with all your beautifully unique children in such a naturalistic atmosphere that nurtures their individuality.
