Born and raised behind the Pine Curtain, Beth S. was educated in a perfect blend of public, private and homeschooling. She graduated from LeTourneau University and began working in University Admissions - which was a great foundation for her career in corporate development (*a fancy way of saying “fundraising”). After working with several nationally known charities, she traded in her frequent flier miles and company car for a job where the commute was much shorter and the nights away from home infrequent - working as a minister in her local church. The most recent twist and turn in her story was the arrival of Callie in 2015 and Davis in 2017. So, she’s corralling #twokidsundertwo and mommin’ it up for the foreseeable future. She is married to Andrew, a corporate pilot. She takes pride in rooting for the people and places that make East Texas unlike any other. She likes reminding folks that East Texans are quite diverse and open-minded. BC (before children) she did all.the.things. Now? it’s all about keeping everyone clean/fed/watered.
