About Ruth

RuthRuth has worked as a bookseller, book buyer, for an ePOS vendor, and a large wholesaler in the US. For several years she’s been with Above the Treeline, the makers of Edelweiss, and as the company grew from a startup, she did a bit of everything. She repatriated to Scotland in 2019 with a nervous dog and a Texan partner, and now represents Edelweiss here in the UK.  When not spreading the word, she can be found swimming in lochs, or trying to figure out what’s growing in the garden of her highland home.
