After 20 years as a New York City Girl, KRISTA RUHE hung up her strappy heels and her Sex-in-the-City lifestyle to make a cozy home in Maplewood with the love of her life, her three-year-old daughter Eva. Krista can be found splashing in the Maplewood kiddie pool, pouring rose at backyard barbecues, or oversharing on Facebook.
Krista is a content marketing executive at SAP, an enormous business-to-business software provider and a wonderful and supportive company. She is editor of the company’s blogging platform www.digitalistmag.com. Krista was previously head of executive communications for SAP’s Chief Marketing Officer which included speech writing, blogging and other communications endeavors to make the CMO look good and sound even better. Prior to joining SAP, Krista practiced corporate and employee communications at Edelman, Ogilvy PR, and other communications agencies.
Born in Pittsburgh, Krista went east to Franklin & Marshall College where she double majored in English and theater. She studied theater at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art before heading to New York with a suitcase and a dream of a life on the stage. Krista is very pleased to be back under the stage lights after nearly 20 years of pining in the audience.
