Ruth Carden is in her final year studying Naturopathic Medicine at the National University of Natural Medicine where she also educates the students about H&A products. She created that job for herself when she asked David if she could share H&A's "amazing quality, sustainability and expert formulations, which are some of the best I've seen on the market" with her fellow students.
