Born out of a vision of our founder, Beth Greenman, the IN HIS STEPS (IHS) concept was something that came to Beth that she just couldn’t ignore. From Beth’s initial vision came a series of events and bestowed blessings that are too difficult to explain as only pure chance. One by one, people came across Beth’s path inspired and drawn by the power of the IHS concept – each being uniquely touched by what IHS means to them. The individuals came together as a cohesive team of amazingly talented and complementary professionals, each of whom have made a generous contribution and lasting impression on the launch of the IHS brand.

Beth had a career in sales and marketing before taking a break to focus on community volunteering and raising her and her husband’s son. As the leader of IHS, she brings the vision, passion and energy that every new venture needs to stay on track with its original mission and be successful.
