Our Founder

When told by ‘experts’ that her daughter, Sara, who was born with Down’s Syndrome, would be lucky to push shopping carts at the local grocery store, Debra refused to accept this. Debra Ruh’s unshakable faith in the power of human potential and her love for her daughter led her to create in 2001 Ruh Global Communications and TecAccess. In 2013 Debra decided to start a new company, Ruh Global IMPACT and has seen much success, working with major multi-national corporations, the UN, and foreign government agencies.
