Personally Speaking

Bethany believes that words are powerful. One of her goals, both personally and professionally, is to use words well – to express life, truth, integrity and intelligence.

Outside of her professional endeavors, you will likely find Bethany enjoying the company of her beloved family and friends; playing ball and cuddling with her mini goldendoodle Mario; hitting the gym or going for a long run; traveling; trying out a new restaurant; or savoring a good cup of coffee or glass of wine. Bethany volunteers in various capacities with her church and is very involved with UrbanPromise, a Christian nonprofit that was established to restore local communities by educating and developing children and youth into leaders who will ultimately drive positive change.
