Beth graduated from Washington University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology. She originally planned on becoming a psychologist but changed direction after her last year in college when she volunteered with an equine veterinarian as well as working as an assistant in a small animal hospital. Beth immediately fell in love with veterinary medicine and went on to graduate from the University of Missouri College of Veterinary Medicine in 2001. She practiced small animal medicine for 12 years in Tampa, Florida. In 2013, Beth returned home to St. Louis and has continued to practice small animal medicine throughout Missouri.
Beth had an exciting opportunity to work abroad in 2016 providing free veterinary care to the citizens of Grenada. In addition, Beth is a member of the Missouri Volunteer Veterinary Corp which serves as an emergency response team.
Beth became even more interested in animal welfare upon moving back to Missouri and realizing the vast differences in state laws protecting animals. Beth believes it is her duty as a veterinarian to stand up for the humane treatment of all animals with whom we share this planet. The Alliance has had the privilege of Beth serving on the Board of the Alliance since 2016. Beth is a mom to two dogs, Frankie and Pippa. Her hobbies are yoga, meditation, baking, and historical fiction.
