Born a CODA, Child of Deaf Adults, Beverly developed a strong sense of community providing sign language interpreting services for her mother and friends at an early age. Mother of four college students, Beverly became the surrogate mother to her children’s friends and classmates because of her belief in the proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child.” That ethic carried over into her professional background. She became fascinated with computers as a teen and computer installation and setup along with graphic design became her secret passion. Beverly began her career with Groundswell as Executive Assistant creating her path by becoming the Operations & IT Manager, IT Manager and now IT Director. As IT Director, she utilizes her love of tech along with over 30+ years of experience in the administrative and customer service field, to hold the virtual foundation upon which Groundswell stands as a completely remote organization. Beverly continues to be the “computer jedi” of Groundswell and supports the movement behind the scenes.
