Diane Salyers, SEKRS program coordinator, says, “The Representative Payee Program began in 2005, and by 2006 we had 38 customers. Currently, the program serves more than 140 customers. Laura Doyle-Colvin has been the driving force in the success of the program. She joins me in welcoming Beverly.”
Together, Laura and Beverly will manage the SEKRS Representative Payee Program’s Social Security/SSI funds that provide the necessary supports, services, and guidance for individuals who cannot manage their money and finances. Additionally, they inform and support the person in learning to increase their money management skills and thus, increase their independence.
Beverly comes well prepared to the Payee Program with an educational background that includes degrees in accounting and business administration. Her work experience includes more than twelve years in banking services and eight years providing income-based housing.
Her husband, Steve, is a UPS driver serving the Fredonia area. They have two sons, two daughters-in-law, and five grandchildren, ages 4-12. Beverly enjoys bowling, quilting, motorcycle riding, sports events, and attending her grandkids’ school and social activities.
