Betsy grew up in beautiful Logan, Utah.  After graduating with highest honors in American Studies and Government from the College of William and Mary, she worked in non-profit fundraising at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and The Brookings Institution. She returned to Utah to attend law school at J. Reuben Clark, graduating cum laude. After clerking on the Utah Supreme Court, Betsy returned to Washington D.C. to start her legal career. When her international law firm came crashing down during the Great Recession, she reconsidered the frenetic pace of D.C. and moved back to Salt Lake City, where she’s worked primarily in civil litigation.  She currently serves as Assistant General Counsel for LLC.

Betsy joined the Board of Save Our Canyons in acknowledgement of the richness the Wasatch Mountains have added to her home and life. Some of her happiest, clearest moments have been spent hiking up Days Fork, watching mountain goats on Mount Superior, or biking along the loom-covered trails near Desolation Lake. She’s thrilled and honored to join Save Our Canyons in their practical, persistent work protecting these vital places.
