Beth spent a dozen years in federal service, including as Senior Professional Staff Member responsible for health care oversight on the House of RepresentativesCommittee on Government Reform and Oversight with then Chairman Dan Burton of Indiana and subsequently in the Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness.

Her international interests focus in particular on the Middle East and North Africa.
Congressional investigations she led have been the subject of books and documentaries including the New York Times Bestseller, Evidence of Harm by David Kirby and the documentary highlighting the Thomas Navarro Family’s quest for medical freedom, Cut Poison Burn.
She remains active philanthropically in areas related to integrative health, veterans, children’s and senior’s health issues.
Because of her concern for the over-medicating of children and veterans with psychotropic and psychiatric drugs and increasing use of electroconvulsive “shock” therapy in vulnerable populations such as veterans and the elderly, she became an International Human Rights Commissioner with the Citizens Commission for Human Rights.
