Making an Impact: Beth Troutman’s Story
July 16, 2018
Leaving the World She Knew to Make a Better One
Beth Troutman, former co-host of The Balancing Act, left a promising television career to help change the world.
Now, Troutman is back to tell the inspiring story of why she changed her life to find a greater purpose. After spending the last days of her mother’s life by her side as she battled ovarian cancer, Beth realized how finite life is. Leaving twenty years of television behind, she joined Give Help Global. It was there that she lived in an orphanage in Haiti and spent her days helping local children. Give Help Global recruits American doctors and citizen volunteers to train locals and ultimately create a more sustainable country.
Now, Troutman wants to inspire others to change their lives too.
