Beverly joined FBC in 1981 when she moved to Okeechobee from Central Florida. Although originally from Pahokee, she was drawn to Okeechobee and First Baptist because of her cousin, Debbie Gillis. God opened the door for her to join the FBC staff in April, 1998. She has two children – Judd, who has one daughter, Catherine Bailie; and daughter Julie. Edison and Bailey, her Miniature Schnauzers complete the family. Having learned to sew as a young girl, it has always been a hobby, but in the last eleven years it has evolved into a passion for quilting and an opportunity for ministry.
