Ruthie Kovanen hails from the great state of Michigan, from a teeny town in the Northwoods (Say yah to da U.P. eh?). She is a senior double-majoring in Women's and Gender Studies and Religion with a minor in Anthropology. During the 2014-2015 academic year, in addition to her position with University Congregation, Ruthie will be the Program and Volunteer Coordinator at the PLU Women's Center. In her spare time Ruthie enjoys sipping coffee with friends, playing music, and thinking about life. Ruthie finds it odd to write in the third person.
