Regional Finance and Development Program Manager
Bethany joined Clean Water Action as the Office Manager of the Northampton Field Canvass office in spring 2021 and has been working as the Regional Finance & Development Program Manager since December 2021. She is also one of the co-facilitators of Clean Water Action's LGBTQ+ Caucus Call.
Bethany came to Massachusetts in 2018 to pursue graduate studies in Linguistics and graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a Masters in Linguistics in September 2021. Bethany earned a B.A. in Linguistics from Michigan State University in 2017 and then spent a year as a post-baccalaureate fellow at the University of Maryland.
Before coming to the East Coast, Bethany was born and raised in Michigan. This was where her passion for environmental stewardship and racial justice developed, primarily in response to the lead crisis in Flint, Michigan.
Outside of work, Bethany spends time weightlifting, doing yoga, hiking, kayaking, bicycling, camping, rock climbing, and taking advantage of any excuse to be outside! She loves to travel, learn languages, and try new things. She lives in Amherst, MA, with her wife and cat.
