Each year, Beverly donates hundreds of hours to non-profits on the Coast, such as the American Red Cross, Walter Anderson Museum, various programs for the Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art, and the Gulf Coast Community Foundation.

    When she is not busy making her clients’ lives easier, Beverly enjoys playing tennis, going out on her family’s boat and spending time with her husband, Hale Dees, her son, Wesley, and daughter, Sydney.
