Bethany and Lundy purchased their first home with the Schlichter Team after their move to Denver upon completion of Bethany’s service in the US Army. She and Lundy met during a deployment to Afghanistan where Lundy was serving as a government contractor.
Bethany works as a hospitalist physician at Porter Adventist Hospital in south Denver, where she has been directly interacting with patients infected with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19). Treating these patients has been a challenge due to ever-evolving evidence and frequent changes in guidelines. Denver area hospitals, and Porter in particular, have been fortunate that the number of patients has not completely overwhelmed their resources as it has in many places. According to Bethany, this is probably a result of effective social distancing and is particularly a blessing given the high acuity (level of illness) of these patients and how rapidly their conditions change.
Lundy has undergone a midlife career change after completing a degree in electrical engineering; he has recently started a job at Seakr, a company that supplies advanced electronics for space applications. He has primarily been working from home due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Lundy and Bethany have been inspired by courageous nurses, respiratory therapists and other hospital staff, who provide the best care despite an ongoing shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) including N-95 masks and gowns. Bethany is thankful for the abundance of community support, including everything from donated masks and face shields, to meals, to nightly howls.
Bethany and Lundy live in the Golden Triangle neighborhood.
