Beth Havens, Senior Prospect Researcher, Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center

How did you get into fundraising and/or prospect research?

After college, I took a job at the Columbus Symphony working on the tele-fundraising team. Eventually I ended up at the University of Cincinnati Foundation on the annual fund team. After a few years, I moved to the research team. I had no idea what they did but the researcher who was retiring told me I should apply! I have to thank Jim Holzbach for taking a chance on me!

When/where was your first Apra conference?

Dallas in 2003. I had just started my prospect research role in June so attending the new researchers’ symposium in July was great! Learned so much!

What are you reading now?

The Long Game: How to Be a Long-Term Thinker in a Short-Term World by Dorie Clark.

How many hours do you get to the airport before a flight?

Two. I’d rather read or grab a snack than stress about making it to the gate on time!

Is pineapple an acceptable pizza topping?

Yes. The only food that doesn’t belong on pizza are eggs.
