Beth, a New Orleans native, grew up a Disney fan driven her neighbor’s fascination with Disney and his brother-in-law, Disney concept artist, Herb Ryman. She grew up entrenched with the artwork, early Imagineering and Disney’s focus on families. After losing her home in a hurricane shortly after her first trip to Disneyland, Beth realized the value of the loving memories like those from her Disney vacation that helped ease the pain in more difficult times. Today as a mental health professional, she applies her knowledge to help others with travel to the parks. Her experience includes keeping families intact, LSU Kid’s Cope and research with post-Katrina children. Currently Beth works in a private setting and heads a nonprofit website, Mouse-aid.org dedicated to helping others with special needs and travel to Disney parks.
