Beth is a retired teacher and serves as co-chair of the Restorative Justice & Equity Group in Bend. Beth grew up here and graduated from Bend High when Bend’s population was 13,500 residents. She moved from Bend to complete college at the U of O. After a stint working in Portland and eastern Oregon, she moved back to Bend in 1994. She bought her home in the Mt. View neighborhood and has resided here since then. She joined the MVNA Board in 2015 and has served as Board Chair since 2018. Beth’s number one priority for our neighborhood is livability. She wants a neighborhood that maintains open spaces for all of us to enjoy the beauty of the high desert, that offers the amenities of walkability and accessibility, and that builds on the strength of the diversity of our residents. She wants to ensure that our Neighborhood Association serves our residents and provides an effective voice to the City about our needs, preferences, and priorities.
