Beth became the Executive Director of Episcopal City Mission (ECM) in July 2013. After spending over 25 years in the corporate world, she felt moved to use her professional skills and volunteer experience working for a nonprofit organization.
Beth's new career direction brought her to ECM, where the executive director position was a perfect match for her passion to serve the community and her professional experience to manage all of ECM's administrative needs. She hopes to stay with ECM for many years where she can see ECM chaplains continuing to touch the lives of the troubled youth.
Beth is a native of the St. Louis area. She has been a dedicated fan of Cardinals baseball since she was in grade school and listened to Jack Buck when she should have been asleep! In addition, she can be found following college basketball during March Madness, especially now as she has nephews playing Division 1 basketball!
Beth earned her M.A. degree in Marketing from Webster University and received her B.S. degree in Biochemistry from the University of Missouri in Columbia.
Angela came to ECM in December 2017 after 27 years’ of serving the Episcopal Church as a lay professional in the Diocese of Missouri on both the parish and diocesan level. She worships at St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Carondelet, where she serves in ministry, including as a Convention Delegate and on diocesan committees.
Angela grew up in St. Louis (Ballwin) and now resides in Affton with her husband, Gary. They are blessed with three grown sons and one beautiful daughter-in-law and granddaughter. She enjoys reading, gardening, fishing, boating, kayaking, hiking, and spending time with family and friends (usually this involves cooking too!).
Angela is grateful for the continued opportunity to empower and support ECM Board, staff and volunteers to be the “hands and feet of Christ” through their ministry and especially enjoys doing that on behalf of ECM and the children in the juvenile justice system.
