Our Team

Beth HatcherBeth Hatcher
Founder, Principal + CEO

With degrees in Poetry and French from Northwestern University, it’s safe to say that Beth stumbled into marketing—and her specialty, healthcare. But after 15 years of first-hand experience with hospitals and physicians, she is an expert in marketing from every angle: website and email campaign management, writing and proofreading, CRM and direct mail programs, analytics, advertising and analysis.

She founded Beth Interactive to fulfill her passion of helping companies large and small make their online presence match the quality of their services. After living in Bochum, Germany for three years, she moved back to Chicago in September 2013 to be closer to clients, family and friends… though she deeply misses traveling and speaking German.

Heidi BushHeidi Bush
Director of Strategy

Heidi is a theatre geek, originally from North Dakota, with 9+ years of experience in the nonprofit sector. She combines her Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Nonprofit Administration degrees into a powerhouse for businesses and non-profits looking to engage with clients and donors. Her love of reading and theatrics has honed her into a well-spoken and out-spoken advocate for those who entrust her to represent their brand. She enjoys strategizing with clients on how to get the most out of their fundraising.

In Heidi’s spare time, she can be found sipping fine tequilas and brushing up on her Spanish with the hopes of someday speaking it more regularly. She is also spellbound by the Rocky Mountains and has the tattoo to prove it.

Brandon WaltzBrandon Waltz
Director of Technical Services

Fueled by caffeine and questionable taste in music, Brandon has spent his life in the arts. From drawing weird portraits, painting murals, making t-shirts, albums and posters to building websites, he enjoys every part of the creative process. He now uses his degree in Art, Media and Culture to design sweet-looking emails that get results and develops effective online fundraising campaigns across different platforms.

He first started working with Beth Interactive while living in Chicago, but moved to New England so he could brainstorm marketing and fundraising strategy while roaming the hinterland. Feel free to contact him to discuss email best practices or your favorite G.I. Joe character.

Allison GuntzAllison Guntz
Director of Content Strategy

Allison is a relationship builder and skilled communicator. Her 5+ years of working, volunteering and even living in the non-profit sector developed her passion for change-makers. Her degrees in Writing, Rhetoric and Discourse and Communication and Media give her the powers of wordsmithery that transform enthusiasm into action—connecting non-profits and businesses with donors and clients to create an impact in their communities.

In her free time, Allison indulges her sense of adventure like a local tourist by searching for her newest favorite modern art exhibit, bar trivia night or stationery shop.

Jenna CohenJenna Cohen
Marketing + Fundraising Strategist

Jenna is a marketing and development professional with 6 years of experience in the nonprofit sector. A passionate storyteller and instinctual community builder, Jenna is committed to helping her clients bring their fundraising efforts to life. She is a graduate of Knox College, where she earned her Bachelors in English Literature—and happily learned more about Jane Austen than anyone ever really needs to know.

After business hours, Jenna enjoys singing with the Apollo Chorus of Chicago—where she also serves on the Board of Directors, going on urban “photo safaris,” listening to jazz, experimenting in the kitchen and sipping fancy scotch.

Megan MillerMegan Miller
Copywriter + Fundraising Specialist

A lover of words and numbers, Meg happily fills her days writing copy, as well as collecting and analyzing data. Her background studying and deconstructing social inequities fuels her passion for healthcare fundraising, because it increases access to quality medical care—something everyone deserves.

Having grown up in multiple regions of the country and moving several times throughout her life, Meg is thrilled to have found a home in Chicago and at Beth Interactive. Outside of work, she serves on the associate board of a local nonprofit, rollerblades along the Lakefront Trail, drinks wine on her patio and reads as many books as possible.
