Meet Beth Bigler

(Written by Desiree Nordstrom, a WIL Committee member.)

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Beth Bigler when she and her family moved into my ward.  Beth is married to Andrew and they have a beautiful daughter Claire, who is 20 months old.  Their second daughter is due in early March.  I have enjoyed getting to know Beth because we are in a similar stage with our lives and careers.  I wanted to share what I have learned about her.  Enjoy!

Beth was born in Utah, and moved around the country while growing up.  Years later, Beth’s family was baptized.  She was 17 at the time.  Beth is grateful for the many blessings the gospel has provided in her life, and feels fortunate to be able to raise her children in the Church. 

After her father’s death in an accident when she was 13, Beth developed a strong desire to gain a higher education and to have a way to support her own family.  Ultimately, Beth knew she wanted to become a lawyer because of the many challenges and opportunities it provides.   She also has a strong belief in the personal development that comes with a higher education. 

Beth graduated from Arizona State University with Bachelor of Science degrees in both Business Management and Marketing.  She then attended law school at the University of Arizona. 

After law school, she began her legal career at Ernst & Young, working with a real estate consulting group.  She then moved into a position as a transactional attorney with a boutique real estate firm in Arizona.  There, she focused her practice on shopping center acquisitions and dispositions, as well as shopping center leasing.  She also gained experience with other types of real estate transactions, as well as some environmental law and some real estate financing. 

Following a move to Southern California, Beth began working as an appearance attorney in the area of worker’s compensation.  Shortly after beginning that position, she found out she was expecting her first child.  Beth has enjoyed this work, and has found the flexibility of it to be a blessing during her pregnancies and while her children are young. 

In addition to her legal work, Beth teaches online college courses for the University of Phoenix. 

Beth is a beautiful person, a great attorney, and a wonderful mother and wife.  If you meet her, get to know her.  I am so grateful I did.
