Beth joined the California Building Standards Commission (CBSC) as an Architectural Associate in May of 2019. She moved to CBSC from the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD), where she was a District Representative in the Division of Codes and Standards. Prior to HCD, Beth worked at the City of Sacramento in the Building Department as a building inspector. Her role at CBSC will include administering the code adoption process for Title 24.

Beth’s interest in building standards began with her first job as a clerk typist at the Building Department of the City of Sacramento. She was so intrigued by what she saw there, she went to school to earn an Associate of Science Degree in Building Inspection Technology, allowing her to promote to building inspector. She later transferred her experience and knowledge to HCD, where she worked on developing building standards for residential occupancies instead of enforcing them. This unique blend of familiarity with the codes makes Beth a great asset to CBSC.

Beth is a Sacramento native with two adult children and two grandkids. She loves animals, especially horses, and volunteers with Project RIDE on weekends. She enjoys beach time with her two dogs, and also has a bunch of cats at home.
