As Vice President, Consulting Services, Betsy is committed to helping organizations tap into the full potential of their talent by working through the difficult conversations that D&I efforts often entail. She is skilled in facilitating sessions with executives that allow them to understand and address how unconscious biases can unwittingly influence the equity of talent development in their organization. In addition to her work in organizational change, sponsorship, and women in leadership, Betsy specializes in diagnostics and strategy development.

She has partnered with global clients across industries—from professional services firms to energy, manufacturing, and defense companies—to provide insightful, customized guidance for designing breakthrough solutions.

Betsy joined Catalyst after an extensive career in marketing research and strategic planning with consumer products companies and non-profit organizations. She draws upon this expertise when investigating opportunities for impact and identifying key leverage points for creating more diverse representation in leadership.

She is an advocate for the mutual benefits of a culture of work-life effectiveness to drive business results through individual peak performance. Betsy formerly supported the development of the online resource YourOnRamp, a service for women re-entering the workforce after career breaks.

Betsy has presented at many global, regional, and industry-related women’s leadership conferences and is a founding board member of the National Association of Women MBAs, Houston Professional Chapter. She is a recipient of the Texas Diversity Council’s Diversity First Award. She lives her commitment to inclusion through various nonprofit board positions she holds in her local community. When not at work, Betsy enjoys spending time outdoors with her family.

Betsy received her BS in Marketing from Auburn University, her MS in Marketing Research from the University of Georgia, and her Business Executive credentials from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth Executive Education Program.
