Bethany Smeltzer

TEDx Mission Viejo
Partnerships Manager


Bethany moved down to California when she was young and considers herself a native. However, starting from a young age she has had the opportunity to travel all throughout the world and experience a myriad of different cultures.

Having graduated with a business degree emphasizing in marketing, Bethany started her career in marketing working with small and startup businesses. This allowed her to discover a passion for connecting and developing new relationships between different companies. This experience also opened the doors for her to start helping connect nonprofits with businesses that have alignment in their values.

In her free time, you can find Bethany on a soccer field coaching young girls with AYSO in Mission Viejo. She also can be found working with foster teens at her church, where she is on a leadership team helping to develop and build them into future leaders. Bethany enjoys spending time with her friends, family and most of all her niece.
