“Beverly was fabulous, both as a presenter and as a person. She is so warm and genuine--you just can't help but feel comfortable talking with her.”
- Doane College

Beverly was incredibly generous with her time, took photos with new “fans” afterwards, and provided much needed information to our audience on this difficult and painful subject. She was an absolute delight. Such a warm and friendly person that I enjoyed having at our conference.
