Beth grew up moving between small towns in Colorado and Montana as her father followed mining and construction jobs. By the time she entered high school, her family was living in Boulder where her mother still lives on the family ranch. She attended the University of Colorado in Boulder where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Music Education and a performance degree in Flute. She went on to earn a Master’s in Business Administration along with a Master of Science in Health Administration from the University of Colorado in Denver, after which she moved to Denver and began her career in the healthcare field.

Beth worked with health care organizations and employee benefit company’s around the country as a consultant for a national healthcare firm based in Cleveland Ohio. She also headed up the operations of a statewide managed care organization based in Denver, Colorado.  She moved to Wyoming in 1996 when she was recruited to serve as the founding Chief Executive Officer of WINhealth Partners, an insurance company offering group health plans and HMO products in Wyoming. During her 13-year tenure there she created the operational infrastructure of the company, developed physician-hospital networks, and established the client base necessary to grow the company to the second largest health insurance company in Wyoming. In 2010, Beth left WINhealth to assume the role of Chief Executive Officer of Prodegi Corporate Benefit Services, an employee benefits administrator that she and Taylor operate together, and which is based in Worland with offices in Laramie and Salt Lake City, Utah.

Beth married Dr. Taylor Haynes in 2002, four years following the death of his first wife Barbara. They lived on their organic cattle ranch west of Cheyenne until 2013 when, following the consolidation of their Cheyenne and Laramie Prodegi business offices, they moved to Laramie.  There they own and operate an all-natural cattle ranch in Albany County, along with operating the employee benefits business in its three locations. They spend any free time with their family, attending concerts or cultural activities, or enjoying the outdoors with their three dogs.
