This week on #GrantChat we are celebrating our love for grant budgets with guest Bethany Turner, GPC. Bethany is one of our GrantChat team members and has long been a GrantChat ambassador.
Bethany is the owner of bmtconsulting, a grant development consulting firm located in eastern Kentucky. After earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Studies from Ball State University, Bethany got her start in the grant professional as an AmeriCorps VISTA member in 2011. Since becoming a grant professional, Bethany has worked with many different organizations securing more than a million dollars in federal, state, and private foundation funds. Bethany loves reading, traveling (anywhere and everywhere), and cheering on The Ohio State Buckeyes and Denver Broncos.
We hope you can join us on 02/14/17.
