Before joining VOX Beth headed public relations and public affairs for nutritional company Martek Biosciences, manufacturer of the omega-3 fatty acid DHA for use in infant formula, dietary supplements and food. There, she led all consumer and corporate public relations efforts, as well the company’s advocacy initiatives with the U.S Food and Drug Administration, national health organizations and research institutions.
Prior to joining Martek, Beth spent 6 years at the Washington, DC office of Powell Tate/Weber Shandwick where she focused on international and defense clients, and led integrated communication campaigns that often included grassroots advocacy and the establishment and management of an association or coalition.
Her work on behalf of international governments includes: leading a media campaign to spur U.S. investment in El Salvador; serving on the day-to-day communication team for the Embassy of Colombia; and, executing a communication campaign to reverse declining rubber glove sales in the U.S. on behalf of Malaysia’s rubber industry.
Beth has a Bachelor of Arts degree in international affairs from George Washington University and has completed course work toward a Master of Arts degree in international communication at American University in Washington, D.C.
Away from work, Beth spends most of her time running after (and cleaning up after) two very active little boys. As an exercise junkie, avid reader, novice gardener and aspiring wine aficionado, she strives to make some time for herself between work and motherhood.
