Ruth completed her M.Arch at Columbia GSAPP in 2010, and co- founded CO Adaptive in 2011, which has since won numerous awards for their work, and been recognized as a Design Vanguard by Architectural Record, featured as a Next Progressive by ARCHITECT Magazine, and was show-cased in the inaugural exhibition Architecture Now: New York, New Publics at The Museum of Modern Art in 2023. Ruth has given talks at Montana State, University of Virginia, University of Miami and University of Waterloo.
