Mary Ruth Snyder
Mary Ruth spent the first quarter of her life, assuming she lives to be 100, in the heart of southern Ontario’s agricultural mecca of Essex and Kent counties. Known as one of the most competitive media markets in all of North America—the seed of writing and journalism had taken root. After a year exploring Europe, back on Canadian soil she landed in Victoria, a few days later informing her family she would be living on Vancouver Island for the rest of her life. 27 years and counting, the last 10 in the Comox Valley, Mary Ruth embraces every opportunity to share stories of adventure, discovery and experience.
