A little bit ABOUT ME

Ruth Ann Skaff

Ruth Ann Skaff joined AMEL USA’s inaugural board in 2016. She enthusiastically supports Amel’s mission to provide essential educational skills to persons less fortunate so that they can achieve their full potential, and live and work with dignity.

Ruth Ann’s worldview and career in the non-profit, charitable sector were influenced by her Peace Corps Volunteer service in Morocco. A decade in Memphis with ALSAC, the fundraising arm of the world-renowned St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, was equally formative. She has worked as senior staff and as a volunteer board member for a range of large and small charitable and advocacy organizations.
