As marketing director at SDK, Beth serves as the behind-the-scenes provider of tools to the front line team of accountants. With a degree in communications and a master’s in educational administration, she has a deep bench of experience – communications manager; regional trainer; marketing director and community relations director – promoting schools, cities, regional parks, businesses, associations and individuals in her tenure.

Beth is responsible for the creative and strategic marketing initiatives. Key areas of expertise include art direction, lead generation, major event execution, content development, project management and multi-channel campaign implementation.

Beth is a firm believer in the power of networks, remaining active and serving in leadership roles for numerous professional associations. You might say she’s a board junkie, currently serving as president of the Westwood Lutheran Memorial Foundation.

When I’m not working…

I like to work on home remodeling and gardening projects, see as many Broadway shows as possible, take my puppy to dog-friendly breweries and visit fun restaurants with friends.
