Grant Writer & Systems Expert
Bethany is the (self-proclaimed) data nerd of the group! Bethany specializes in grant management to fulfill her passion for organization and systems of process. She is always looking for ways to help streamline internal processes, enhance the workflow of her colleagues, and alleviate any grant-seeking stress that our clients encounter. Bethany is also one of our exceptional grant writers on the team and thoroughly enjoys researching and matching clients with funders who optimally align with each client’s unique needs.
Originally from California, Bethany graduated from Cal Poly Humboldt with a BA degree in Studio Art and did what most art students immediately do: get a job in a sector not related to their degree at all. After four years working in customer service, she moved to Southern Oregon and started her grant writing and management journey at Oregon Shakespeare Festival in 2019. During her time there, she met Elaine and later joined Just Look Left in February 2023.
In her free time, Bethany can be found cuddled on the couch with her dog Eris, or obsessively adding to her collection of eclectic hobbies which currently include writing extensive backgrounds for her DnD characters, playing and writing music on at least four instruments, learning how electricity works for her DIY home renovation, and ultimately becoming the ultimate gremlin hermit she can be.
