At the age of eight, Beth Anne decided she wanted to be the first female US Senator from Virginia, where she was raised. The notion wasn’t too lofty though; she assumed it was a job that didn’t start until 10 a.m. After earning a degree in Foreign Affairs from the University of Virginia, she moved to Washington, DC, where she learned a lot about politics and policy, and spent time on Capitol Hill as congressional staff.
Today, she’s usually up by 6:30 a.m. to begin her day as a mom to three spirited children who think she should run for president. Her husband is a Pennsylvania native and the family lives in Harrisburg.
