Beth, a GFS alumna and University of Arizona graduate, has parlayed her Olympic Gold Medalist discipline into a successful business career. Her career after college has intertwined swimming and entrepreneurship, founding a swimming school for young children and serving as an Assistant Coach in collegiate Division I swimming at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Arizona. Beth's other passion, skin and hair care, led her to manage a medical spa in Southern California, building a small medical spa to one of the top revenue generating clinics in the elite Southern California area. After meeting her husband and moving to Indiana, she continued her work in medical aesthetics and plastic surgery, growing a practice there as its manager from $300k to over $1.3 million in only two business years through savvy marketing and business strategies. Currently, Beth runs her own high-end hair salon, specializing in blonding and hair extensions, and is one of the most sought after hair artists in southern Indiana. Her marketing expertise continues to fuel its growth and success, reflecting her seamless blend of athletic discipline and business savvy, along with her adaptability and innovative spirit.
