With roots in Chattanooga, TN, Elizabeth Ruffner spent her undergraduate and graduate career as an archeologist. Through her experience as an archeologist, Ruffner learned the importance of cataloging and preserving valuable artifacts. She noticed a need for an art advisory after seeing countless art collectors and enthusiasts overcharged for pieces and unsure about how to intelligently build their collections and manage their wealth. The Ruffner Art Advisory was built on Ruffner’s passion for art and commitment to giving her clients the best experience while maintaining discretion to their art investments.
