Who is Kim Ruffin?


Kim Ruffin fell in love with the outdoors climbing trees, playing on dirt mounds, and riding bicycles off homemade ramps in flip-flops. Inspired by her family’s legacy of nature stewardship, she became an educator and author.  A desire to open more doors for nature connection led her to become a Certified Nature and Forest Therapy Guide.  She is excited about inviting people to encounter other forms of nature and each other. Through her company, Cardinal Encounters, she celebrates the joys of life on Earth.
