Bethea Pattel moved to the Richmond Shire in late 1999 after she married husband Terry Pattel.


She transferred to the Richmond State School as a teacher in 2000.  Since that time she has had a family of three children.


Prior to living in Richmond, she worked as a journalist at the Northern Miner and North Queensland Register and worked as a teacher at Cloncurry State School.


Bethea has been involved in numerous community clubs and events as either a volunteer, member or committee member.  Her interest has always been to ensure Richmond community members are provided with services and events that are common place in other regions.
