Dixie Ruland, a German native, came to California 30+ years ago. While still in Germany, she completed the German equivalent of a BS in Laboratory Science and went on to work in the medical field. Throughout her life, Dixie has freely volunteered her time to a wide variety of causes. She joined the SRA staff in 2008 as Health Care Coordinator after having volunteered her services for several years as Medical Committee Chairperson. Dixie loves to work with our students, helping them to navigate the changing health care system.
