Favorite Quote: “Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead let life live through you and do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?” – Rumi
Beth’s “fun factor” is her granddaughter, Georgia Mae. “I never guessed being a grandma could bring so much joy to my life.”
Beth jokes that her Catholic next-door neighbor introduced her to Teen Dating Abuse programs, and she’s still here! She discovered RISE and life changed. Observing several workshops led Beth to a higher level of understanding that she needed to better care for herself. She has since served as Chair for RISE and remains involved with the facilitators. In addition, Beth is co-chair of our Personnel Practices Committee, on the Section Board and on the Executive Committee.
