Bethany has spent the last 11 years living and learning in a small immigrant neighborhood with a community of believers and nonprofit organization called Solidarity. She currently serves as the Immigration Initiative Director for Solidarity, helping to mobilize and equip the Church to engage the issue of immigration from a Biblical perspective. She also is the founder of Camino Immigration Services, an initiative of Solidarity that provides quality legal counsel in immigration matters to the North Orange County community. Through her years living intentionally in her neighborhood, Bethany has become very passionate about the Church aligning with God’s heart for the immigrant because she knows from personal experience how engaging “the other” can transform you to be more like Jesus. She served as a Church Mobilizer for The Evangelical Immigration Table from 2013-2014 and remains engaged in legislative ministry and advocacy.
Bethany grew up in Long Beach, CA then moved to Fullerton where she attended Hope International University. She has a Bachelors of Art in Inter-Cultural Studies and is accredited by the Board of Immigration Appeals to practice Immigration law. Bethany loves to travel, the beach, In n Out, and spending time with her community and family. She lives in the Gem District of Fullerton, Ca with her husband Matt, daughter Alivia, and two precious foster babies.
