Sarah Ruiz was born in Boston, Massachusetts, and raised in New York City. After attending the University of Connecticut, she married young and had two beautiful girls. Through her own personal struggles and tragedies (including a divorce), her devotion to her daughters remained her first priority. She enrolled in business school, and years later, with her Masters in Business Administration (MBA) in hand, a new career opportunity brought her to Maryland, where she met and fell in love with Enrique.
Enrique Ruiz is a leading authority on Diversity & Inclusion methodology and practice. His 30-year career in Operations, managing teams of up to 15,000 people, and experience living on two continents gave him a reliable and effective perspective on people management that he now shares through his speeches and books on leadership, diversity, character building and relationships (visit www.AmericasDiversityLeader.com). He has a BS in Business from Excelsior College, University of New York and an MBA from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Scotland.
After Enrique's failed 25-year marriage and the loss of his 18-year-old daughter, he began to transform his struggles into personal successes. He met Sarah while working on a government contract, and today they have both come back stronger after failed marriages.
Together, we have united a family of six that is built on love, understanding, clarity and wisdom. We hope our hard-earned wisdom will help you on yours. May your candle burn bright, all days, for life!
