Author Bio: 

As a firefighter, writer, active community member, mentor, and free-form dancer, Beverly believes strongly in serving and inspiring people in her local community and beyond. Beverly brings the multifaceted experiences from all her endeavors to empower and motivate people to follow their dreams, break through personal and social barriers, and celebrate their authentic self-expression. Whether she is speaking to the community, teaching students, interacting with people on the emergency scene or on the dance floor, Beverly infuses her interactions with optimism and encouragement.

The eighth woman to be hired as a firefighter in her fire department’s sixty-five year history, Beverly has been a firefighter, responding to emergencies for an urban fire department, for the last fifteen years. In 2010, Beverly received the Firefighter of the Year Award from the local chapter of Optimist International. When she’s not putting out fires and saving lives, she enjoys running trails, perfecting her prose, marveling at the small discoveries in her garden, and dancing her wild, natural expression.
