Beth Benner – Executive Director
Beth has dedicated the last 25 years of her career to working with organizations that serve children and families. Before Women’s Housing Coalition, she led a team for Children’s National Medical Center that designed and built over $400 million of new construction and renovations for a teaching and research hospital, led the team that took Port Discovery (the Baltimore Children’s Museum) from concept to opening, and led a nationally recognized team at the Baltimore Zoo to create a comprehensive physical plan for the facility and complete the first component (a polar bear exhibit) of that plan. Prior to becoming a project manager, Beth was the Financial Vice President/Controller of The Shelter Group, and she began her career at Deloitte, Haskins & Sells.
A graduate of Bucknell University and a former CPA, Beth is an executive with a unique combination of team building, critical thinking, and problem solving skills that she utilizes in her current position.
