Hi! My name is Ruthie and I’ve been working at Emport for a few weeks now. I just started my senior year at Carnegie Mellon University where I’m studying Decision Science (Economics & Psychology) and Global Studies. Here at Emport, I have been working as the business development and marketing intern.
I’m happy to join the Emport team this semester and am looking forward to learning more about the gluten sensitive community. Having grown up alongside close friends and family members who struggled with celiac disease, I am interested in learning how we can help make gluten-free lifestyles easier to maintain.
I am originally from New York, but have enjoyed calling Pittsburgh my home for the past few years. When I’m not at the Emport LLC office or on campus, I’m taking advantage of the many museums, restaurants, and concerts that Pittsburgh has to offer or experimenting with new recipes in my kitchen. My favorite new recipe is actually one for gluten-free baked macaroni and cheese!
