Since joining the foundation in 2011, Beth is involved in all administration steps in the grantmaking lifecycle as Grants Administration Coordinator. As part of PEAK Grantmaking (a national organization which advances grantmaking so grantmakers and grantseekers can best achieve their missions), Beth serves as the membership chair on the MN chapter steering committee. Before joining the Foundation, she worked for Thrivent Financial for 10 years, and earned her B.A. from St. Olaf College and her M.A. in leadership from Augsburg College.
Beth and her husband live in St. Paul, and are blessed with two adult daughters. They enjoy exploring the abundance of Minnesota’s lakes and trails by cross-county skiing, biking and walking, along with family and friends. Through her church, she passionately serves youth and families on St. Paul’s East Side.
