Beanie is a licensed local pastor, appointed to Shady Grove UMC – Short Pump since 2015. As the Director of Adult Discipleship, she enjoys bringing joy and enthusiasm to learning. Her love of preaching and contemporary Christian music come together in the modern service in the fellowship hall. She enjoys the age old hymns and litany of the traditional service in the sanctuary. 
Beanie enjoys writing and directing dramas with children, youth, and adults. These skits and plays help underscore the Biblical message of good news and grace.  Her favorite Bible verse is Luke 2:10, “And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I bring good news to you of great joy, which will be to all the people.’”
She has a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism, with a concentration in Advertising, from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill. Watching ACC basketball is a huge joy, especially cheering on her Tarheels.  She is also a proud VCU ram, with a Master’s in Education and a Post-Baccalaureate certificate in Human Resource Development. She attended Duke Divinity School, earning her post graduate certification in ministry (United Methodist Course of Study).
Beanie is the mother of two grown children, Caran and Paul. Paul is married to Keri and they have adorable toddler twins and a preschooler son. Beanie is pretty crazy about them!
