Bethany serves as the Executive Director for the Florida Education Foundation, as well as the Deputy Chief of Staff for the Florida Department of Education. As a third-generation military brat who has lived in 17 different communities from Pre-K to postsecondary, her family’s commitment to public service formed her professional ethos to produce high-quality work to improve both individuals and communities.

For the past 12 years she has been serving Florida's communities in the private, nonprofit, and government sectors. Most recently she was a Director of Legislative Affairs for the Florida Department of Education. Previously, Bethany was Leadership Florida’s Member Services and Resource Development Manager, and before that, she was an Account Manager at a top-tier, public relations and advertising firm, The Zimmerman Agency, managing three global accounts.

Most importantly, however, she holds the titles of daughter, sister, aunt, friend, Guardian ad Litem, and Floridian.  Bethany is a graduate of the Florida State University where she received her Bachelors of Science in Public Relations and has a Masters in Nonprofit Management from the University of Tampa.
