Beverly was a creative and generous individual who had a deep desire to help everyone. She was known for her loving and fierce nature, as well as her passion for teaching and videography.

Beverly's educational journey began at College High School where she met her husband, Stephen, and she later pursued her passion for dance as the first dance major at George Washington University. She went on to obtain a second bachelor's in film from UCF and a master's degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Education.
