An "A-Ha" Moment
It was while Beverly was an award-winning television and commercial producer and executive in several Texas markets that she heard advice from a cable network executive which would change her focus: “Your job is what you trade the days of your life for, therefore your job has to have significant meaning to you.” This was an “a-ha” moment that ignited in Beverly the idea that you do not have to sacrifice who you are, or what you are passionate about, to have a career. And in her case that means developing content that ignites in others a fire to give back and make a meaningful difference.
Beverly’s passion for helping others can also be attributed to her roots. Growing up in a military family, she became a volunteer assisting new families with moving needs as they settled onto base. At 16 years old, she had already found a desire to lend a helping hand to strangers and still cherishes the opportunity that she was given to this day.
