Mother of Natalee Holloway, Author, and Veteran Educator
Beth Holloway Bio
How does one muster the courage to persevere in the face of sheer adversity? Do we all have the capacity to overcome tragedy? How does one keep going? You will be uplifted by the remarkable story of Beth Holloway. How does she stay strong? Imagine being able to apply her philosophies of courage, dedication, faith and strength to your own life.
By her own account Beth lived a quiet, somewhat uneventful life as a speech pathologist (B.S., M.S.P.) for children with special needs for 24 years. Her life changed quite dramatically in the summer of 2005 when her daughter Natalee disappeared on the last night of her senior high graduation trip to Aruba. This tragic story became the leading news mystery when it happened, and continues to make headlines today. Beth has appeared on every television network in the nation as well as on international TV and radio and in international newspapers, capturing the world's attention as she searched for her daughter.
Barbara Walters selected Beth Holloway as one of the world's most fascinating people for her perseverance in seeking answers to what happened to Natalee.
Beth has delivered her message of hope, faith and personal safety to young adults and people of all ages all across the United States. To date, she has presented her message to tens of thousands of students and parents alike in high schools, colleges, churches, local and national conventions and other venues, and to law enforcement officials, Attorney Generals, Mayors' Conferences, professional associations, prayer breakfasts and many others.
As a New York Times Best Selling author ("Loving Natalee" - also a Lifetime Movie) and a veteran educator, Beth continues to work on educating the public on safer travel. To that end she offers her half-day Travel-Ed Workshop to all ages.
ABC 20/20 filmed a documentary with Beth, which aired in November 2019.
