In her new book, You Belong, A Guidebook for the Career-Minded Woman on the Move, “Ruth Anne shares valuable lessons learned and takes readers on a voyage of discovery, encouraging them every step of the way,” said Chris Schafer, CEO at Tactical 16 Publishing. “She includes reflections at the end of each section that will give her audience real clarity on next steps to take on their career journeys!”
“My book is for women out there that have questioned where they are in their careers or haven’t been taken seriously as active participants in the workplace,” said Kramer, a therapist with the Department of Veterans Affairs in Virginia. “I’m focused on helping others overcome any anxiety, doubt, or fears they have. I want all women out there struggling to know that they’re not alone. Let’s get moving. Together.”
