Betty was bitten by the travel bug from day one. Her father’s employment at TWA (Trans World Airlines) made it possible for the family to fly to Europe for free, in an era when flights were prohibitively expensive
Born with a rebellious streak, Betty has resisted traditions and practices that she felt were unfair. This was not always easy for her conservative parents! Her first visit to Washington, D.C.
Betty and her husband are health advocates. When their daughter was diagnosed with JIA (Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis) at the age of three, it was the beginning of a long, ongoing journey.
