RuthEmily Ricci, President

I am currently employed as a health care policy consultant. My previous background includes work with the State of Alaska, focusing on the various aspects of health care including Medicaid the State Employee and Retiree Health Plan.

My volunteer experience includes work in Sri Lanka following the 2004 tsunami, the American Red Cross after Hurricane Katrina, and as a Rural Community Health volunteer with the U.S. Peace Corps in Benin, West Africa. In Juneau, I have been a Board Member of the Glory Hole and my neighborhood association.

As a cancer Survivor, I understand the importance of Cancer Connection and have relied on their services to support me through my diagnosis and treatment. I am excited at the opportunity to help the organization that I relied on and to support others in our community.
