A Bit About Betsy
Betsy has developed organization-wide strategies, coached executive-level staff and boards, performed academic and market research and successfully written grants up to $1 million. She has also directed several cross-sectoral collaborations that address public health, housing, and environmental sustainability.
Working with the full range of employees, Betsy seeks engagement from individuals just starting their careers to top-level leadership including elected officials, CEOs, executive directors and board members.
She has a BA from Brown University (Providence, RI), Masters of Science in social epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health (Boston, MA), and a Masters of Business with a focus in environmental sustainability from Concordia University (Montreal, QC).
Betsy serves on many non-profit and government boards and is currently the Vice Chair of the Rhode Island Energy Efficiency Resources Management Council, which oversees the state’s annual investment of over $85 million in energy efficiency infrastructure and interventions.
Betsy seeks opportunities to harness the power of the group; she believes that bringing together people with diverse backgrounds and life experience is the best way to articulate a shared and exciting vision, and agree on a pathway to get there.
She was trained facilitative leadership by the Interaction Institute for Social Change (Cambridge, MA) and the Rockwood Institute (Oakland, CA) and in Appreciative Inquiry with Innovation Partners (Montreal, QC).
