Melisa Ruiz *
Board of Directors

Melisa Ruiz joined the board in June 2019. As a parent of two children with exceptional disabilities, she first became involved with PEAK in search of support and information. As a result of her involvement with PEAK, she has become a parent that proudly knows how to advocate for her children. Melisa is passionate about supporting the mission of PEAK. She  believes: all children are children first and foremost, we should all aspire to ensure that we don’t see a disability; but rather, we see the human potential for developing the gifts that every human being has the capability of sharing. She is grateful for the love and support of her family, friends, and co-workers, and admittedly still makes her husband watch the Twilight movie series with her.
