Ruth Gierisch

Director, Operations

Ruth is what you would call a “process nerd.” As the Director of Operations at Walk West, Ruth works with all departments to find efficiencies in how the work is coordinated and flows throughout the agency.

After nearly two decades in sales and marketing with a local newsweekly, Ruth made the jump to project management and agency life. Since then, her natural talent for organizing chaos and fierce dedication to a job well done have proven to benefit both internal teams and clients alike.

Ruth is an Appalachian State University alumni. She currently lives in Durham with her wife, Jackie, and their three French Bulldogs, Gidget, Frank, and Beans. When she’s not trying to make her co-workers lol with a random Slack gif, Ruth can be found gardening, working out, or planning her next home project.
