Beth Gillia, JD, MA

OFRA Director

Beth Gillia has always worked with and for children and families–as a teen teaching infants to swim, developing a network of family-based child care centers, as a tribal court judge, as a GaL in abuse and neglect cases, representing survivors of domestic violence, as Director of the Corinne Wolfe Center for Child and Family Justice, and most recently as Deputy Cabinet Secretary at CYFD. Beth is deeply committed to improving systems so that children and families flourish.

Beth has a BA in Women’s Studies from Hampshire College, an MA in American Studies from UNM, and a JD from UNM School of Law. When not working, Beth raises alpacas, goats, and chickens, enjoys whitewater rafting and all things outdoors, reads like a fiend, and keeps her hands busy and heart full with a variety of fiber arts.
