Biography

Hi, I’m Beth! I was born in Pittsburgh, PA (Go Steelers), but have lived in Raleigh, NC for most of my life. I am a graduate of NC State (Go Wolfpack) with a BA in Sociology and a Minor in Communications. I am basically an educated people person who loves to talk!

I have a diverse professional background that has resulted in a savvy skill set. I do not shy away from most challenges and I strive to leave things better than I found them. I am an empath and a perspective junkie; I want to find all 7 sides to the story and know what it feels like to live in each. I lead my life with integrity and expect the same from the company I represent, which is why I believe Brand Fuel is the perfect place for me to spend 40 hours a week.

The other hours of my week are spent being a mom to my budding jazz musician son Jonah, baking amazing sourdough bread or cooking a delicious meal for friends, working in my vegetable and herb garden, or tapping into the right side of my brain by upcycling textiles in my sewing room. I also love to travel and feel that is one of the best ways to gain perspective.
