Owner & Director
Dr. Beth Dennard is the founder and director of Bright Futures Consulting.
Over the span of 40 years, she worked in public relations in the US Air Force, served as an Admission Officer for the Air Force Academy, and was the Director of College Guidance for two private schools in the Houston area. She started Bright Futures to combine her extensive knowledge and experience with the skills of an expertly curated team to mentor students towards their bright futures. She finds nothing more satisfying than helping to successfully launch a young life into the adult world.
Dr. Dennard earned her Doctorate in Education ( Ed.D.) from the University of Houston and her MA in Counseling. With a strong understanding of fit, Dr. Dennard is able to help students discover the best fit college for them and the necessary steps to admission.
She is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a Certified Educational Consultant, and Certified Birkman Consultant. Her favorite part of Bright Futures’ process is unveiling a student’s Birkman Assessment! It brings her the utmost joy to see students accept themselves for who they are and to see parents empowered by their child’s unique strengths.
Dr. Dennard once worked at Disney and is very into (and is still very into) her Christian faith. She is also left handed and a retired Air Force Colonel!
Now, as the owner and director of Bright Futures, she serves as a mentor and advisor for Bright Futures college counselors.
