Betsy Walton

How do your colleagues describe you?

A team player with a can-do attitude, a doer who is organized and detail oriented.

Why do you do what you do?

In 2008, I took the class GYRM and enjoyed it tremendously. Now it is my time to give back and share my knowledge and experience while I still have it!
