Dr. Beamer grew up around dentistry and fell in love with it from a young age. Her mother was pregnant with her during dental school, and her father was already a practicing dentist. They had set up an operatory as a nursery, so she truly grew up exposed to dentistry. She would help her parents with emergency patients on the weekends when she was in high school and observed the importance of commitment and compassion for patients.
During her time away from work, Dr. Beamer spends her time cooking, traveling, and enjoying outdoor activities with her wonderful husband who she met at Virginia Tech. They are big Hokies fans. They also have three sweet dogs who bring a lot of entertainment to their lives.
Dr. Beamer looks forward to building relationships with her patients and immersing herself into her community. She believes that an important part of being a medical provider is getting to know the community you serve.
