As an educator, Beth has spent twenty years helping educational organizations serve their communities and students reach their goals. She’s a regional leader in adult education and workforce development and has also worked as a leader and teacher in K-12 and higher education.
A Democrat and lifelong Californian, Beth came to the North Bay almost a decade ago to be with family in Sonoma County. She served as a guest teacher in grades K-12 in multiple Sonoma County school districts and taught middle school in Windsor. At College of Marin, she managed Community Education and Lifelong Learning programs in Kentfield and Novato. Currently managing adult workforce training programs for the Lake County Office of Education, Beth collaborates with partners in Marin, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Humboldt counties.
Prior to coming to the North Bay, Beth lived and worked in the San Francisco Bay Area, creating and managing community service and student leadership programs at Saint Mary’s College of California. While a Bay Area resident, Beth volunteered with multiple nonprofits, mentoring through Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area, serving free meals to struggling San Franciscans at the St. Anthony Foundation, and providing support at fundraising events for Make-A-Wish. She was also an active member of All Souls Episcopal Parish in Berkeley.
Beth met her archeologist husband in the North Coast region, and they married in Sonoma. Having grown up with an active outdoor lifestyle, her husband helped her discover an appreciation and love for rural life. They are parents to a strong and spirited toddler.
WHY I'M RUNNING
I’ve spent twenty years in public service as an educator. Now, I want to do more to serve my community.
As District 2’s representative I will focus on all of the issues that matter and be responsive to the needs of people throughout the vast district, from urban to suburban to rural.
I am a Democrat and a leader who excels at respectfully listening to diverse viewpoints, synthesizing complex information, and finding strategic solutions to problems. In my work in Washington, D.C., I will focus on legislation that ensures people in our region can succeed by supporting public education; promoting job creation and economic development; tackling our housing crisis; improving and protecting access to healthcare including, if necessary, protecting reproductive rights; and combating climate change while making our region more resilient to fires, droughts, and power outages.
I will be present throughout the district, and make sure my Congressional staff is focused on helping constituents in any way they can.
I am invested in focusing on the issues we collectively face and finding a path forward that makes the most significant and lasting difference for all.
Join me and together we can forge a future for the North Coast in which every voice matters and every person can thrive.
