After graduation, she moved to Des Moines and started working for Allied Mutual Insurance Company and played basketball for their company team. She was recruited by Look Magazine to play basketball for them continuing in the Women’s Semipro Basketball League. She had an amazing hook shot.

She was also an avid golfer throughout her adult life and was several times the winner of the women’s championship at Webster City Country Club. Beverly enjoyed many sports.
