Beverley Simmons was born in Upstate New York and spent her adolescent years being a part of a competitive Color Guard unit, performing in front of audiences at local competitions. In college, she studied theater arts, taking courses in acting, stage production, oral interpretation and public speaking.
Finding early work doing voice-over and live presentations, she eventually moved to the Southeast and began work in front of the camera doing commercials, short and feature films, television shows, and industrial films. Simmons’ first television appearance was 2014 in “Swamp Murders” (Fox network) which garnered her national exposure.
Simmons enjoys independent films and has co-star and principal roles in the festival circuit films "An Authentic Life" and "Learning, Improving & Succeeding," a bold film about the teachers and principal (played by Simmons) who took part in the Atlanta cheating scandal of 2015.
