Beth Anne Boardman, PhD (Myth 2012) began her education with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in nursing from the University of Colorado. After several years of occupational health and hospital nursing, Beth taught nursing theory and clinical practice at Jennie Edmundson Hospital School of Nursing in Iowa. During this time Beth completed a Master’s degree in English Literature from the University of Nebraska at Omaha. In 2005, Beth co-founded the San Clemente Joseph Campbell® Mythological RoundTable® community group in California, which met monthly for 10 years to study and discuss the works of renowned mythologist Joseph Campbell. Later that year, Beth began applying her varied background to the study of Mythology, completing a Doctorate in Mythological Studies with an Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica in 2012. Beth’s dissertation, Diving into Darkness: Adolescents in the United States, will eventually see publication as a book, The Alchemy of Adolescence. She is unceasingly grateful for the magical presence of her two adult children, and now dances with joy with her brand new grand-beeble.
