My name is Beth Buehler and I started with CBAP in 2008. I have worked as the Program Coordinator for the past 12 years and have loved every minute of it. Although I don’t get the opportunity to be onsite as much as I used to, my love for the program encompasses everything I do in life. I love the outdoors and love to explore new places. We are so fortunate to live in the PNW finding new adventures everywhere we turn. I have a daughter who attends University of Montana and is working towards her career as a SLP, and a son who attends Pacific University and is working toward his career in Special Education. There is no doubt in my mind that this program influenced their career choices.
