Beth joins Auldern Academy as the Director of Marketing and Outreach. Beth began her college studies at Auburn University and completed her higher education at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. She has been in the marketing, outreach, admissions and management of programs for struggling teens since 1994. Beth brings experience in start-ups, working with short, intermediate and long term residential programs, therapeutic boarding schools and day treatment/schools. She also brings the ability to manage and assist in the administration and implementation of these programs and schools. The years of working with referral sources, families, and the wonderful staff and clinicians that support them, has assisted in personal growth for Beth. “In the years that I have worked in the adolescent behavioral healthcare industry, it is the children and their families that make this profession so rewarding. From the first conversation with a parent or referring professional, I feel we have a tremendous responsibility to make sure that a young person and their family will benefit from their experience. Watching the students grow, seeing them become emotionally healthy, and build self-esteem is truly a gift. The entire team at Auldern is very committed to the children, their families and each other, which is why I am extremely proud to join this group of knowledgeable, experienced, and caring professionals. I look forward to strengthening and nurturing the relationships I’ve had the privilege of developing over the years.”
