Prior to joining Open Sky, Betsy worked in an outdoor education program and witnessed the powerful impact of nature. She also worked in inpatient treatment and was excited to learn about wilderness therapy as an alternative that incorporates the outdoors. She believes in the work of Open Sky and was drawn to it by the commitment to a holistic approach.
Betsy values the ability to spend an extended period of time with students, guiding them through the joys and challenges of their pursuit of a healthy life and relationships. She contributes greatly to the guide team with her open-mindedness and love for new adventures.
When she's not in the field working, Betsy loves to knit, read, climb, backpack and travel.
