Beckie HS.jpg

Beckie is very proud to say that she was born and raised in San Francisco, California. She simultaneously came out as leather and as a dyke, and has been active in the leather community for about 25 years. Daddy, Sir, Owner, Top Sadist, and Science Geek, Beckie identifies as all of them! She also identifies more as masculine than feminine, however, she does her best to embody the best qualities of both, and is comfortable with whichever set of pronouns people are most comfortable using.

Beckie is a Scientist by education, and has had a long work history in Finance and Customer Satisfaction. She was Founder and President of the first Lesbian Sorority at San Jose State University. Overcoming lack of support from one of the leading diversity specialists who told Beckie that she could never get a group of lesbians to work together…Beckie did it anyway. She has volunteered for countless Leather events over her 25 years in the community. She has been in key lead roles at events such as IMsL, Northwest Leather Celebration, and Folsom Fringe, in addition to being on the Board of smOdyssey as Treasurer. Beckie is currently the Director of Registration and Finance for the IMsL/IMsBB Weekend and Board member for the PRIDE Diversity Network in her day job at one of the top Fortune 500 companies.

Beckie is looking forward to beginning a new chapter of community involvement by joining the Board of the IMsL Foundation. She is planning to not only help preserve our history…but to hopefully have a little fun while we make more of it!
