Early LifeEdit

Beth was an only child growing up. Her mother, Susan was an owner of a day-care, where her father Mike was an accountant.


Growing up, Beth didn't care about if she was popular or not. She didn't care about if she had all of the expensive clothes, or makeup or the high-tech products. All that Beth cared about was her education.

Beth had graduated from highschool as the valedictorian. After graduating highschool, Beth moved to St. Petersburg, Florida. She lived in Florida without a job until 2006. When 2006 rolled around, she started applying to be some form of a personal assistant. She was down on her luck when no one accepted her plea for a job, until she was accepted as a personal assistant to IZOD IndyCar driver Dan Wheldon.

Also, besides the fact that Dan died during an IndyCar race, Beth still plans on getting herself involved in the series with whatever she could do.

Personal LifeEdit

After getting to know each other through Beth's job as Dan's personal assistant, Dan and Beth ha started going out in 2007. The relationship didn't last long as Dan had proposed to Beth, which Bet had accepted. They'd gotten married on May 15, 2008.

On February 7, 2009, Beth had given birth to her first son, James Joseph Wheldon.

On March 11, 2011, Beth had given birth to her second son, Chris Lee Wheldon.

Just before Dan's death on October 16, 2011, Beth and Dan went to a tattoo parlour in Las Vegas, Nevada and they each got their initials tattooed on their wrists.

Twitter AccountEdit
