About Dr. Beegle

Donna Beegle grew up in generational poverty and left school at 15 to get married. At 25, she found herself divorced with two children, little education, and few marketable job skills. At age 26, she earned her GED at Mt. Hood Community College. She went on to study poverty, communication, and education and--within 10 short years--received her Doctorate in Educational Leadership. Dr. Beegle combines her lived experiences of poverty with 30 years of research and work in all 50 states, to create inclusive, responsive environments that promote lifelong success.

"I’m right now at work looking back through some of the information and slowly beginning to process what I've learned. When I first heard Dr Beegle--about 3 years ago at Kansas State University, she did a poverty training with our program. I was changed forever! I desperately wanted to learn more about how to genuinely make a difference in the lives of those folks in our community living in poverty. Unfortunately, when I asked to attend the Poverty Institute, there weren’t funds available. But my supervisor allowed me the time off and I paid for everything myself--because I knew it was that important. And it was worth every penny and then some!"

"In some webinars, a person can kind of multi-task and pay only half attention, and still get most of it. This was not like that! Highly interactive, LOADED with information. It caught and kept my full attention and kept me thinking and taking notes the whole time. High value here."
