Hey! I'm Beth and I'm the new President and Social Media Chair! My husband Jeff and I have been married for 17 years and we have two teenagers. We've been stationed here at Ellsworth for 2 years and we're getting ready to transition to retirement life. I've been military my whole life, from the child, to active duty to now a spouse. Previously we were stationed at Wright-Patt AFB in Ohio where I held several positions throughout my time there (such as Vice President, Social Chair, Secretary and Social Media). I look forward to meeting and helping out the spouses here at Ellsworth and hopefully being a resource for those new to the military life. When I'm not volunteering, I can be found in my kitchen where I work from home or finding another creative outlet!
Hello, my name is Shana. My husband, Theron, is a civil engineer in the DIRTBOYZ shop with the CE Squadron. We have been here since October 2019 and have really enjoyed it! I’m originally from Las Vegas, NV. I have been an event planner for over 20 years. We have four children, 3 boys and a girl ages 22, 19, 14 and 12. We also have 2 dogs, Smokey and Xena. I love anything and everything outdoors, crafting, sports, and meeting new people. I feel very blessed to have met so many great people here that welcomed my family to Ellsworth with open arms, and be able to be an active member of Team Ellsworth Spouses’ Club! I look forward to meeting you!

Hi! My name is Stephanie Sullivan and I am the 22–23 TESC secretary. My background is in Physical Therapy and I have my Doctorate of Physical Therapy degree from UNMC in Omaha.

Hey! I'm Toni, I've been at Ellsworth for about six years. Loved it so much I decided to retire here. My husband is still on active duty, so we are just enjoying the ride with our two girls, a dog and a cat. Love the opportunity to continue to serve Ellsworth families with the TESC.
Hi! I'm originally from eastern Iowa. I've been married to my high school sweetheart, Derek (Shades), for 27 years this summer. We have two kids, 20 & 18, who are both attending Black Hills State University, so we're pseudo empty nesters! :) I taught elementary and special education before having kids, and then transitioned to being a stay at home mom for 19 years, homeschooling them both. The Air Force has moved us 15 times in 25 years, and Ellsworth remains our absolute favorite! I currently work part-time at Fountain Springs Church as the Outreach Ministry Coordinator. This allows me to work with many nonprofits and volunteers in our community while having time to still volunteer and support our families and airmen at EAFB. In my freetime I enjoy hiking and anything crafty. I look forward to helping make new connections through TESC this year!
