Beth has been involved in adult education and training for over 16 years at Blackhawk Technical College. Whether in the classroom or the training room, she’s participated in improving the hard (technical) skills or soft skills of entry and mid-level employees. In the last five years, she has created and continues to teach the Human Resources Associate Degree program at BTC. SHRM has proven to be an invaluable resource for the program from providing a body of knowledge framework for curriculum to job opportunities for her graduates.

Beth is SPHR certified, a member of the Association of Talent Development (formerly ASTD) and a member of the Wisconsin Association for Career and Technical Education. She is excited about the position of Workforce Readiness Director for Wisconsin SHRM aimed at communicating about the constant changes in job requirements for organizational success, the wide-range of diversity in the Wisconsin workforce and the programs the government offers to meet those needs.
