Confronting the Pitchford Curse – Beverly Miller's Story of Love and Greed
Beverly Pitchford Miller grew up idolizing her father and wanted to be just like him. He taught her to be inventive, industrious and impulsive. When she realized that he was not the honest, honorable man she had loved, she distanced herself from him.
She grew from her first job as the youngest stewardess ever hired by Pam American Airlines. She loved being a stewardess until she met Jack, an Air Force Pilot. Their love for each other and flying carried them on a whirlwind life.
Using the skills her father had taught her, she became a mover and shaker in the real estate world in West Palm Beach and Washington, DC. Her last real estate effort caused her to face the "curse" that had ruined her father's family name and reputation. Her goal was to restore the family name and recapture their fortune.
Her drive and success in a man's world in the 1970s and '80s was unprecedented and earned her millions.
