Ruffner’s years of experience have taken her all over the world, from investigating a possible Bronze Age peridot mine in Egypt, to underwater survey and excavation projects in Israel and the Red Sea, and the excavation and survey of multiple sites in Turkey. Through her experience as an archaeologist, Ruffner learned the importance of cataloging and preserving valuable artifacts.
