Donna M. Beegle, Ph.D., understands poverty first-hand. The child of migrant workers, she traveled with her family from Arizona to Washington as they followed the fruit-picking season. She left school for marriage at age 15. At age 25 with two children, no husband, little education and no job skills, she continued to struggle with poverty. During the following decade she defied the odds and obtained her G.E.D., bachelor's, master's and doctoral degrees. She co-founded Communication Across Barriers, a consulting firm dedicated to broadening and improving opportunities for people who live in the war zone of poverty.
