Ann Hoffman-Ruffner

About Me: 

After a 29 year career as a therapist/administrator in mental health, this April 2014, I resigned to focus my energies on a new vision. Working with women to transform the world. I created a business for the self-actualization and empowerment of women and girls and am working to connect women on a broad scale so that we can leverage our interests, passions and power to positively impact our communities, our countries and our world.

I am also the co-founder and president of the regional volunteer nonprofit collaborative, The Partnership for Mental Health, Inc., whose mission is to promote mental health through community education, collaboration, and advocacy.

My Passions: 
Connecting and Empowering (particularly women & girls), Creating Joy
My Vision for the Future: 
The world will be transformed by women empowered and connected
My Areas of Expertise: 
grassroots organizing and coalition building, leadership, mental health, coaching
