Ruth Chang White. Educator and Spanish Interpreter/Translator.

Ruth’s journey at the birth center started in 2006 when she was taking English classes at Pellissippi State College and got a call to interview as a Spanish interpreter for Lisa Ross Birth and Women’s Center. Over the years, Ruth has also undergone training to lead educational classes including centering pregnancy and nutrition. She also became a lactation consultant. She’s witnessed dozens of births in her time supporting and interpreting for Spanish-speaking clients. “The births motivate me, I feel useful because they needed somebody,” she said. Before coming to the United States, she ran a restaurant in her native Peru and still loves to cook. She also has an affinity for painting of any kind, though she says she’s particularly good at watercolor.
