Candidate for US Congress in Indiana’s 4th District
Meet Tobi Beck
Get to know the woman behind the movement.
Working with others to reach a goal – it’s not just words, it’s about action. By listening, building, and understanding, Tobi is ready to bring a new voice to Congress.
With a family that moved from state to state due to her father’s job, Tobi traveled the country growing up. Watching her father work with small business owners to rescue and reform their companies into profitable ventures, Tobi saw first-hand what makes a successful venture, and concluded early-on that success depends on people.
Continuing a generations-old family tradition of military-service, Tobi enrolled in the Army Reserve Officers’ Training Corps as soon as she entered college. She enlisted in the Army upon graduation, was branched to the Military Police and assigned to a Strategic Force (STRAF) Unit. After rigorous training in law enforcement, military operations in the battlefield, special weapons security, and more, she was assigned to the 571st Military Police Unit and spent much of her time deployed on various missions, including to Cuba for Operation Safe Harbor helping Haitian refugees, and in Somalia, just a few months prior to the famous incident depicted in the film Black Hawk Down.
After active duty, Tobi joined the Reserve and started her career in security design and internet technology. In 1996, she was called to Atlanta in the wake of the bombing at Olympic park, to help design and build better security for the city. In 1999, she led a technology team to mitigate the effects of ‘Y2K’ in Silicon Valley, and in 2001, she was once again asked to help serve as additional security after the attacks of 9/11.
Fighting for the Fourth. Tobi Beck now resides in Avon, Indiana, with her husband, two cats, and a giant schnauzer. A foster parent for more than a decade, over the years Tobi has opened her home and heart to more than two dozen Hoosier children in need. Tobi and her husband adopted three of those children, two of whom are now military servicemen with the third having chosen the medical profession.
As a community leader, Tobi has served as a Red Cross volunteer, taught CPR to hundreds of soldiers and civilians, and organized a campaign to provide winter hats to underprivileged children. A member of the historical education organization, the SCA, Inc., Tobi was proud to host the international organization’s 50th year celebration in Hendrick’s County, bringing over $3 million to local businesses.
A dedicated community leader, devoted foster parent and wife, service woman, and experienced professional, Tobi Beck knows that it’s time for a new voice in Congress. That’s why she’s running for the fourth district in Indiana. Tobi has fought for her country, her family, and her community – now, she’s fighting for the Fourth.
