State Director - Midlands Office
My name is Beth Deason and I am the State Director for Bright Start. My journey with Bright Start began in November of 1999. Coming from a background of Speech Therapy, before Bright Start offered the service, I came on board as an Early Interventionist. I have a Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology from the University of South Carolina and practiced as a Speech-Language Pathologist in various settings for 9 years before finding my true love of working with very young children. This realization brought me to the field of Early Intervention, as I learned of the awesome opportunity to work with young children and their families. After years of serving with Bright Start in this capacity, I transitioned into the supervisor position where I was afforded the opportunity to support Early Interventionists in their role. I then moved into the State Director seat where I was able to support the supervisors for EI and Speech Therapy. In of March of 2019, the Case Management Program was added to the group and today, I am blessed to provide support to all supervisors of all programs at Bright Start. I can not begin to tell you how amazing it is to work for a company who wants to build people. I have learned and grown so much in leadership throughout my journey here and I see myself as very fortunate to come to work each day with a company that has mission, vision and values that are focused on serving others with the highest quality; helping all people reach their fullest potential.
