About Tabitha "Beth" Burgess

Hi! My name is Tabitha Burgess, but those who know me, call me "Beth."  I live in the beautifully inviting rural community of Floyd, Virginia with my no-nonsense SO, two beautifully wild and crafty children (aka "the Burgelings"), my loyal beta dog, and two ti-gurr-ific felines.


With skills and expertise in a variety of disciplines and trades, I have cobbled together a comfortable living. I have three businesses offering support for distinct service areas and my newest venture is to start a podcast themed around the happenings of the Floyd community.

During my downtime, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. In particular, I find solace in the kitchen and outside on the patio listening to the sweet sounds of music, nature, and the joyous cacophony of kids and pets at play.

I always welcome and enjoy meeting new people and thrive on finding ways to cultivate connections and help solve problems. Feel free to drop me a line so we can connect and talk about your projects!


My Latest Projects

If you are local, you can pick up a copy of the print publication at the Floyd County Chamber of Commerce office or the FCPRA office in town or you can download the guide as a PDF by clicking here or on the cover image.

A former board member with the Floyd/Floyd County Parks & Recreation Authority urged the group Monday night at its meeting to reconsider its recent motion to dissolve the Authority.

Beth Burgess, who also spoke on the same theme to the Board of Supervisors at their meeting Tuesday, said her concern and frustration revolved around the “haphazard and expedient manner” in which the board voted to dissolve the Authority “without exercising proper and appropriate due diligence before this action was taken”...
