Elizabeth "Beth" Gregory is passionate about Share Her Smile. Rachel was not merely Beth's daughter; she was her best friend as well. Traveling the transplant journey with Rachel was one of Beth's greatest honors. Beth began her professional career as a nurse in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA where she spent 15 years in the field of nursing. She had 2 children during that time; Benjamin Tiller and Rachel Gregory. In 1990 the family relocated to Pulaski, VA. After a year of being a stay home mom, Beth began volunteering at the local elementary school. Her volunteer position soon evolved into a paid Para Educator position. Beth spent the next 10 years working with special needs children in the Pulaski Co. school system. When a full-time position became available at the Pulaski Co Health Department, Beth applied for and was hired as a Resource Mother. This position united both of her previous professions; nursing and education. In this position Beth worked with pregnant and parenting teens. She taught life skills and healthy habits to ensure a healthy pregnancy, provided resources to enable the teens to continue with their education, and worked with the teens to become successful parents. In 2005 Beth relocated to the Greenville, SC area where Rachel joined her. Beth was then hired at the Greenville County Detention Center in the Records Division as an Administrative Support Specialist. She remains employed at the Detention Center as an Accounting Specialist. Beth plans to use her diverse skills to make Share Her Smile a success. The courage and determination Rachel demonstrated during her journey now resides in Beth, and she is determined to make Share Her Smile a reality.
