A passionate supporter of the city's vibrant food, music and arts culture, Beth spends her non-working hours riding her bike, listening to live music, walking her dog Ruby along the river and in City Park and connecting with the particular New Orleans brand of magical realism that greets her every time she walks out of her front door.
