Prior to joining the HSOP Development Team, Beech served as a Development Coordinator for the Auburn Fund where she helped coordinate efforts of the Auburn University Foundation Annual Giving program through various channels including direct mail, email solicitations, and the Auburn Fund Phonathon program.

After graduating from Oklahoma, Beech spent time in New York City where she enjoyed a great deal of exposure to high profile clients and events with the New York Mets and Rubenstein Communications.

With the Mets, Beech gained valuable experience in Corporate Sales and Partnership Servicing as she worked hand-in-hand with executives and team personnel to sell and execute contracts that were mutually beneficial for both the client and the team. In that role, she worked with teams sponsors like Delta, Citi, and Xerox.

After her time with the Mets, Beech entered the world of Public Relations, working for Rubenstein Communications. She was directly involved in press monitoring, pitching news releases, and staffing high-profile events for an array of clients including the NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee, Major League Baseball, TIME Magazine, and the Metropolitan Opera.
