Beth is passionate about people and desires for each person to live life authentically and come to know and share the gifts they have been given. She is the Assistant Director for Faith Formation at the University of Portland and creates opportunities for students to reflect and integrate their classroom learning, lived experience, and faith. Prior to earning her Masters of Divinity from the University of Notre Dame, Beth shared life in a L’Arche community in Washington, DC and upon returning to Portland served on the L'Arche Portland board for five years. It is these experiences that taught her the importance of embracing our humanity with all our gifts and disabilities. She is currently in formation to become a Spiritual Director with SEEL Portland (Spiritual Exercises of Everyday Life), an Ignatian program leading people through the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola.

"The longer we journey on the road to inner healing and wholeness the more the sense of belonging deepens. The sense is not one just of belonging to others and to community. It is a sense of belonging to the universe, to the earth, to the air, to the water, to everything that lives, to all humanity." - Jean Vanier
