""Ruth Qi and I worked closely to help create Seattle Business Education Hub. Ruth's unwavering commitment to a unique vision was critical to the success of Seattle Business Education Hub. She spent a great deal of time researching any critical decision and always thought about all sides of a question before moving forward. Ruth was challenged with a difficult role, providing support for our Not For Profit Organization’s 501C3 application and contract review. Her low key, calm (but highly efficient) style provides the perfect guidance to our young organization, one that will continue to mature under her pro-bono assistance and strong leadership.""
