MEET THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Born in North Dakota, Betsy slowly made her way East with her parents and brothers. Meeting George at Eastern College (now University) and then graduating from there brought her to Bethlehem, PA where she’s lived for 30 years. Betsy’s main working focus of the past 27 years has been spent being “Mom” to Rick, Katie and Maggie – although there have been times when she’s actually gone to an office to work for an insurance agency and a charitable trust. Betsy also considers it a privilege and responsibility to volunteer her time both locally and globally.
