Biography

Bethany Gomez

Bethany Gomez was born in the Metro Detroit area. In 1987, she earned a Diploma in Nursing from Hurley Medical Center in Flint, Michigan, and later earned her B.S.N. from The University of Michigan.
After passing her nursing board exam in 1987, Ms. Gomez went directly to work as a critical care nurse in the Critical Care Medical Unit at The University of Michigan Medical Center. While working as a critical care nurse and as a mother to four children, Ms. Gomez pursued a study in law at Michigan State University-Detroit College of Law where she graduated with a concentration in Health Law.

Once passing the bar, Ms. Gomez founded Bethany MG Gomez, PLLC, where she practiced Estate Planning, served as guardian ad litem in Livingston County, Michigan, and represented individuals in need of conservatorships. With the desire to spend more time with her family, Ms. Gomez decided to return to The University of Michigan Medical Center to work on behalf of patient safety and claims management within the Department of Risk Management. While there, Ms. Gomez worked and learned under the novel and ground-breaking patient safety movement now known as the “Michigan Model,” which she carried forward in her insurance defense work at a prominent professional liability insurance carrier. To round her experience, Ms. Gomez proceeded to work for a plaintiff’s personal injury firm in Michigan, where she applied her expertise and knowledge to gain justice and compensation for those individuals hurt in personal injury claims.

Ms. Gomez is now a founding partner of the law firm Mid-Michigan Legal & Consulting, where nursing and law come together to provide for the needs of the individual, first responders and the healthcare community as a whole with a focus on life estate planning to continue to care for families navigating life’s challenges.
