Bethany was born and raised in Waterloo, IA. She graduated from Wartburg College in 2020 with her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. She spent 3 years teaching special education and left the teaching world in pursuit of service and finding her passion. She enjoys advocating for others, being a listening ear, and strategizing solutions.
In 2021, Bethany provided kinship care for her younger half-sister, Grace. She was adopted in July of 2021. This opportunity pushed Bethany to further educate herself and pursue work in the foster and adoption field.
In her free time, you can find Bethany reading, listening to music, or hanging out with her friends and family. She loves spending time with her daughter Grace and her boyfriend Kade. Last but not least, she loves her 3 fur babies, Zuko, Jasper (cats), and Bubba (dog).
