About Me

My name is Bethany Bell. I am a 20-something PR professional at a foodservice advertising agency in Springfield, Mo. My passions include writing, social media, coffee, direct trade, artisan food and traveling. 

Growing up my mother owned a herb shop, coffee shop and cafe in Cape Girardeau, Mo., so working at The Coffee Ethic in downtown Springfield just made sense. I absolutely adored my job from making the coffee to conversing with all the customers. I also enjoy educating others on coffee ethical practices and quality coffee brewing.

My passion beyond my job and my education lies in culture and fighting poverty around the world. I hope one day to work in an international non-profit organization like Coffee Kids, World Vision or Rainbow Network. I believe I am on a good start because I have interned with Ozarks Food Harvest, Convoy of Hope, and Urban Districts Alliance and did some PR writing for AIDS Project of the Ozarks.

I often like to refer to “The Platinum Rule," coined by Milton Bennett: “Do unto others as they would have done unto themselves." Being culturally aware in today’s society is very important to me. I am also involved on campus as well. I am vice president of Missouri State's Chapter of PRSSA. 

The purpose of this blog is to explore how my three passions: coffee, culture and community all correlate. I write about my volunteer events, exploring culture diversity, my traveling adventures and give lots of coffee tips. :)
