      I first started working in accounting and did not realize that it was a “helping” profession. Now I have over 20 years of experience as a Financial Advisor and helping people is my main job. I have the satisfaction of being able to help individuals and businesses reach their optimum potential financially, every day.  Today, my work entails helping folks with their investment and retirement savings and consulting with small to medium-sized businesses in many operational areas to help them survive and thrive.  My job activities change every day, and I love it.

       My interests in college leaned toward education and music.  In fact, I majored in Religious Education at Furman University, and real life led me back to school to take the accounting courses required for the CPA licensing I obtained in 1987. After many years as an accountant, I became Series 6 and Series 63 licensed to become a Financial Advisor in 2002.

    When I am not working, I spend time with my grandchildren, run several times a week, garden, and read.  I’m currently the Choir Master and organist at St. Mark UMC of Greenville where my husband is pastor.

Beth Dickson

Licensed Insurance Agent

      Beth worked as an accountant for 25 years before deciding to become a Licensed Insurance Agent. After listening to clients and their needs and issues, she decided to help people with their life and long-term care insurance needs.

      Beth remembered that feeling of relief when she obtained life insurance for herself and her husband so that her growing family would be provided for should the worst occur.  Talking with clients over the years, she has seen the “bad,” where families are struggling to work and take care of their aging parents at the same time, as well as the “good,” where families are prepared and able to manage the care given to their parents. Long-term care enabled them to work and not take such a financial hit on their family, and they have more quality time with their loved ones.

    She has been married for over 30 years and has two grown daughters, a golden retriever named Cooper, and two golden doodles named Beans and Ozzy. One daughter is a travel nurse, and the other is a graduate student in counseling psychology at Southern Wesleyan University.  Beth enjoys boating, gardening, and reading. She loves people and would love for you to call her if you need help with anything.
