Beth considers herself a specialist at being a grant generalist, and has worked on applications for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), the Department of Defense (DOD), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the State of Arizona, and dozens of private foundations. When not at work, Beth can be found at home with her cats, or at the barn practicing dressage.
