Beth's interests are broad and deep, as a result of her liberal arts and fine arts education; extensive travel; multiple chosen careers; and an ability to see innumerable topics as interwoven. This gives her the opportunity to work with clients at a deeper level and to parse out their needs in ways perhaps they were unawares. This is a prime interest of Beth's beyond my other writing interests.
Beth's personal interests align with her writing: being outdoors; hanging out with her dog and husband,; finding meaning in the connection between current and past events; and ultimately writing about it all in memoir form.
