Biography & Education

"I currently work with children at Providence Neurodevelopmental Center for Children and Providence Center for Medically Fragile Children, and I love the augmentative and alternative communication opportunities here at Providence!  It is a joy to help a child express him or herself, maybe for the first time."

Originally from Brookville, Pennsylvania (near Punxsutawney, where the groundhog is the claim to fame), Bethany moved to Portland in 2005.  When she's not working with kids, Bethany enjoys hiking with her husband, Chris, and their giant Labradoodle, Huxley, running, reading and spending time with amazing friends.
