I'm Dr. Beegle
Do you know why these poverty trainings are so powerful?
...beacause I myself was born into generational, migrant labor poverty and have first-hand experience of its limitations and misperceptions. I am the only member of my family who has not been incarcerated. I left school at 15 for marriage and began raising two children while continually fighting poverty. At 25, I was unmarried, had little education or job skills. It was from that low point that I got the support I needed to allow me to work my way out. I earned my GED, AA in Journalism, BA in Communications, a Master’s Degree in Communication and a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. For the past 30 years I have worked with educators, justice professionals, health care providers, social service agencies and other organizations seeking to make a difference for those living in poverty.
Join me in changing how we understand those in poverty and together let's create a world where everyone has the access to their true potential.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Dr. Beegle is able to create relevant and memorable connections as to why we should all care about poverty. She is a caring educator who has lived experience with poverty and can help improve how health care providers, teachers, and society can communicate with people who live in poverty.
Incredible first hand knowledge about poverty and those it affects and can verbalize like no one else I know. Her Facebook updates are so insightful. She has given me an opportunity to educate myself about those in need and how I can be of better service.
