Girls’ Basketball

Gould Academy’s Girls’ Basketball Team provides players with an opportunity to work hard on and off of the court. Players consist of female student-athletes who come to Gould Academy from all around the world (from an average of 20 states and 20 countries) and work with our experienced coaching staff to better their skills, confidence, and ability to work together against other teams from both independent and public schools in Maine and New Hampshire.
Our student-athletes work with our coaching staff and college counseling office to ensure a quality college search process to make sure each student finds success at the next level.

Beth McWilliams

Chief Financial Officer
M.B.A Robert Morris University
B.A. Gannon University
Girls Varsity Basketball Coach

Bio

Ms. McWilliams began her career in public accounting, entered the school world as the Controller for Sewickley Academy, and was the Chief Financial Officer for Tesseract School and Hillside School. She had one diversion from private school life when she served as the CFO for a land development company.

At Gould Coach McWilliams serves as the Assistant Girls Basketball Coach in addition to managing the finances and budget and human resources compliance. She also oversees all of our staff departments including business, facilities, dining, school store, business development and technology.  Chairmanship or membership of committees includes finance, audit, financial aid, buildings and grounds, and investment.

“My career has been shaped by a deep-rooted appreciation for independent education coupled with a proclivity for business operations and finance. During my many years in education, it has been distinctly rewarding to extend myself beyond the business offices I have occupied to take on teaching and coaching opportunities, to live on campus, and to enjoy the unique benefits being a part of a school community allows.”

Her interests beyond the office include basketball, gardening, kayaking, hiking, biking and farming. Beth lives on campus with her wife, Elizabeth, and their twins.
