On a personal note...

Beth was born in the same Missouri town as Harry Truman, spent much of her career in Phoenix and is delighted to have returned home to live and practice in Kansas City. She is a 40-year Kansas City Chiefs season ticket holder, and enjoys the Symphony and Theater League. Several weeks in the spring or fall are often spent on the south shore of Galway Bay Ireland. In her spare time she enjoys travel and reading historical biographies – a favorite is Undaunted Courage by S Ambrose.
