Beth graduated from Westminster College with a BS Degree in Elementary Education and immediately moved to Greensboro, North Carolina where she continues to make her home. She taught elementary education for Rockingham County School District for most of her career. Beth earned her Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from High Point University. Beth was promoted to Assistant Principal for Central Elementary School in Rockingham County where she served for two and half years. Her life took an interesting turn when her father had open heart surgery. Spending time in the hospital caused Beth to remember that at one time she had considered becoming a nurse, even becoming a candy striper which she thoroughly enjoyed. A half year after his surgery, Beth moved to Pittsburgh to go to the Mercy School of Nursing. After the two year program, she returned to Greensboro and began working as an RN on the Geriatric Behavioral Health Unit. Beth also served as an Interim Educator for the unit but chose not to take the position because she wanted to continue to work with patients. She does, however, continue to run classes and workshops. She finds this makes a good mix.  Beth enjoys golfing, traveling when the opportunity arises, going to movies, and being an aunt to her nieces and nephews.

Beth truly appreciates this opportunity to serve on the YWCA Board. She will strive to be a productive member adding value to the Board by serving with energy and by trying to make a difference in the lives of those touched by the YWCA of Greensboro. This opportunity to serve her community is something she strongly values.
