"I've known Betsy for years. Our first interaction was in her role as an author. When we met, she was writing a book on 50 Chicagoans who had changed the city for the better. She did a fabulous job on the book. When our senior communications director retired, I contacted Betsy to fill-in on a part-time basis. She did a great job, and we retained her on contract for almost a year, well after we made a hire. Betsy is a joy to work with, professional, a great writer, conscientious, and concludes projects on-time"
