Manager, Education Partnerships
After graduating from Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa with a degree in Communications and Leadership, Bethany packed a backpack and traveled around the world for two years. Her travels to 25 countries influenced her to lead a life of intentional relationships, transparency, and a healthy and balanced team environment. After returning from life overseas, Bethany decided she needed more adventure and packed up from the Midwest (where she’d lived her entire life) and moved to Colorado to work with a non-profit as a job coach for adults with developmental disabilities. After several years there, she joined the Global team and brings years of experience in marketing, business development, and customer service. Bethany’s also pursuing a MA at the University of Denver in Organizational Leadership, Strategic Change, and Innovation.
When she is not buried in her studies or globetrotting around the world, Bethany enjoys weekend getaways with her friends, family time, going to the dog park with her Golden Retriever puppy, and binge-watching Greys Anatomy.
Vice President of Operations, General Manager
After graduating from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Economics, Joe pursued more education receiving two master’s degrees in Operations Management and Finance, respectively, from Regis University. Although he’s worked in several fields (finance, technology, and healthcare), he knew Colorado was always the place to be professionally and personally, and joined the Global team as Vice President of Operations and General Manager.
When he isn’t preaching about quality and performance improvement initiatives to reinvent healthcare and education, Joe enjoys karaokeing 80s and 90s pop and rap music, and anything that gets him outside with his family and dog, Mikey.
Andrea has been in the medical education industry since 2011. During her time with Global, she’s focused on program management and operations, with an emphasis on customer service.
She received her degree in business from the University of Denver, and when she isn’t managing programs, mentoring employees, or completing outcomes and reconciliations, she likes to spend her time painting, crocheting, or at concerts – and documenting everything on social media along the way.
Director, Education Strategy and Analytics
Before joining the Global team in 2013, John worked in various industries in customer service, marketing, and sales support. At Global, he manages all marketing and branding as well as several partner relationships. John is passionate about digital marketing and enjoys being involved in all aspects of the business.
When he isn’t managing or creating process improvements for Global, he likes to spend his time outdoors. Hiking, camping, running, and skiing (the mountains of Colorado and Japan) are a few of his favorite activities – all while cheering on his alma mater Kansas Jayhawks with his dog, Harvey.
Director, Education Partnerships
Although he was born in Alabama, David hit the road for college and found himself at the University of Georgia, where he met his eventual wife. After graduating with a degree in communications, he spent time in several parts of the country working in various sales roles before landing in the pharmaceutical industry, which brought him to Colorado. David is passionate about sales and education and has been in healthcare for over 15-years. Although he’s recently moved back to Georgia to manage Global’s “east coast operations,” it’s his hope to return permanently to his “new home,” Colorado. David also represents the Global team as a Volunteer Committee Member for the Alliance for Continuing Education in the Health Professions (ACEhp).
After work, he enjoys playing chase with his young daughter and traveling to explore new areas with his family. He and his wife welcomed their second daughter last year; little Elizabeth Anne is keeping them and her big sister on their toes each day.
Liddy has lived in Colorado her whole life and self-proclaims herself to be “Global’s resident crazy animal lady.” She completed her degree in finance and much of her experience is in compliance, auditing, and operations management in a wide variety of fields.
In her downtime, she enjoys hiking with her husband and two dogs (Nibbles and Indiana Bones), fostering homeless animals, and travel.

Julia received an English degree from St. Lawrence University in upstate New York before moving to Colorado in 2015. In addition, she has a hybrid graduate degree through the Harvard Extension School. She helps out everyone at Global with a variety of activities, assignments, and tasks, and also works as a part-time editor.
When she's not obsessively correcting everyone's grammar, Julia enjoys exploring the outdoors with her dog, Beowulf - a 70-pound malamute / husky mix that considers the Global office his second home.
Ashley is a rare Colorado native and has lived here most of her life.

Ashley has a passion for project efficiency, organization, and streamlining processes to help our partners.
