Beth Reichert

Beth Reichert admits that she is NOT a native Charlottean but has been in Charlotte long enough to remember Uptown without Romare Bearden Park and the Thirsty Beaver not surrounded by a massive apartment complex. Since moving to Charlotte in 2013, Beth has only ever lived in Uptown’s Fourth Ward neighborhood and takes full advantage of its walkability. Her formal education, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Coastal Carolina University and a Master of Arts in Public Policy degree from SUNY Stony Brook, complemented her long-time proclivity for mission-driven work. She is now a 3-term AmeriCorps alumnus with over 17 years of experience at nonprofit organizations throughout the country, primarily Habitat for Humanity in both New York and North Carolina and United Way. She is also an avid volunteer and a graduate of the City of Charlotte’s Civic Leadership Academy, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department’s Citizens’ Academy, and Community Building Initiative’s Leaders Under 40. Often referred to as “the green one” throughout her network, she makes a sincere effort to steward resources responsibly and creatively and is thrilled to work alongside peers who share a commitment to sustainability and environmental equity.
