Now she's a fierce 59, but Beverly worries she may have spent too much time focusing on her modeling career. "Early on as a model, I really was just concentrating on this physical appearance and a lot of other things got stunted," she says. "Mentally. Spiritually. Emotionally. ... I think that I made a concerted effort to try to catch up." Today, Beverly's working on starting a business and exercising the aspects of her personality she put on hold for a while.
It's also Beverly's mission to be a voice for domestic violence survivors. "I am a victim of domestic violence," she says. "I just think we've become so desensitized towards women being beaten and abused and murdered that everybody just thinks it's okay, and it's not."
