Whether through events and motivational speaking engagements or talking to strangers, Beth tries to inspire all individuals to open their minds and examine healing from within.  Her desire to encourage others to understand self-healing in a supportive environment comes from first hand experiences as being a two time lightning strike survivor. Beth has persevered though it all to create the person she has become today, from loss and grief, to the many surgeries including amputation of nine of her toes.  She has been married to her husband David for twenty years and together they have two children. She is a lover of nature, an Army Veteran, and a model of mind-over-matter enthusiasm.

What people are saying about Beth’s Speaking Engagements:

To all Veterans and Veteran Sponsored Groups “Without hesitation I wholeheartedly recommend Mrs. Beth Peterson as a guest speaker at any veteran program or event.  I was initially impressed with Beth’s enthusiasm, communication skills and professional demeanor. She speaks from the heart.  Of particular value to me, is her message to all veterans of encouragement, and how to resolve the most tragic setbacks life can give you. I have listened to two of Beth’s presentations, first one to Linn County Veteran Commission and the second to the Iowa Department of Veteran Affairs 2nd District meeting. Her style is clear, rewarding and inspiring. Her Book “Life after Lightning” is clear and easy to read. The book is an inspiration to all and especially veterans on how to forge a path to wellness. I use and refer to her book often when speaking to veterans who have suffered everything from loss of limb, sight and even the silent pain of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).” ~ Donald Tyne, MS, CVSO Director, Linn County Veteran Affairs
