Carlee Sanford, Executive Director

Carlee is an ENFP. End of bio. That’s a joke, but in a very real sense Carlee’s personality could be summed up in those four letters: her Meyers-Briggs Personality Type. Carlee is the prototypical diplomat, with a genuine love of people and a seemingly supernatural talent for analysis and critical thinking. As someone has said elsewhere, she is a force to be reckoned with, someone to move Ruffner into a new and exciting time of growth and possibility . Carlee holds a Bachelors of Science in Marketing from the University of Alabama, and for almost ten years she has worked in marketing and management, maintaining relationships with a whole host of clients around the state, from Alabama Power, to Steel City Pops and Shoal Creek Properties. Carlee knows how to market and how to manage, but most importantly, she is a problem solver, using her uncanny intuitive ability to get to the heart of the issue and take the proper steps to address it, untangle it, and turn it into a solution. If at times she seems a little “all over the place”, that’s because she is—juggling any number of projects in her head and in her hands, and skillfully. Carlee is someone who we at Ruffner are proud to follow to the proverbial mountaintop.
