Originally from Massachusetts, Beth attended both Alfred University School of Ceramics and the University of Maine in the 1980s, studying ceramic engineering and geology. During this time, she was fortunate enough to be selected to work at the University of Maine Darling Marine Center as a summer intern studying Benthic Ecology. This unique experience, which Beth recalls fondly, included cruises in the Gulf of Maine on the oceanographic research vessel, R/V Gyre.
Moving often around the state of Colorado and the country, Beth is most proud of her volunteer work with equines at both the Denver Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center in Franktown, CO and Happy Dog Ranch Foundation in Littleton, CO.
Beth now lives in Sedalia. She shares her home with her husband David, over 20,000 bees, 20 chickens, some named, some not, 2 goats, Angus and Fergus, her dog Happy (pictured), her cat Jenny and her horse, Plen Te of Chex, also known as Chexy!
