Meet Ruthanne Warnick
Thanks so much for visiting my website. I’ll
introduce myself to you here, and I’ll look forward to you
introducing yourself to me soon.
I have a long history of interest in people’s
experiences and stories, whether they live across the street or
across the world…and whether their stories are of everyday life or
I’d say that it all began with my first
international trip at the age of 15, which opened my eyes to a
completely different culture. Then, as a college undergraduate
student, I randomly took a couple of geography courses that changed
everything. I was completely smitten by the ways people live, why
they live where they do, and what their lives are like. I went on to
earn a master’s degree in geography and then pursued a career in the
travel industry to feed my passion.
After taking a ‘mom’ break and working on
numerous special projects to capture people’s stories, here’s what
became crystal clear. So many people regret that they didn’t take
the time to capture the stories and the words of wisdom of their
loved ones, and now they’re lost forever.
Thus was born Capture the Journey. Our mission is
to help others capture their stories and share their messages of
wisdom, values, gratitude or love — to share with loved ones now and
as a legacy for future generations – before it’s too
In addition to the workshops and public speaking
presentations I give through Capture the Journey, for the past 23
years I have developed and presented numerous educational and
leadership programs, facilitated workshops, and train hundreds of
volunteers for a national women’s organization.
I am proud to be a Certified Legacy Advisor
through the International Association of Storykeepers and a
Certified Guided Autobiography Instructor through the Birren Center
for Autobiography and Life Review.
Now that you’ve ‘met’ me, I look forward to
meeting you and discovering how I can help you or a loved one
capture your journey and create a lasting
