About our Guest:
Beth Ingle has 40+ years of working with people and helping them make life changing decisions. The first 37 years were spent working as a Service Representative, Claims Representative and a Technical Expert with the Social Security Administration. It was a rewarding but challenging career and helped her realize that she wanted to continue helping others, particularly Older Americans, after she retired. Beth has spent the past 5 years working for Living By Your Design helping others make some very difficult, life altering decisions for themselves or their parents. By treating them with compassion and respect she hopes that she has been able to give them Peace of Mind as they navigate the journey of aging.
