Welcome to my corner of the Internet!
I’m a writer and editor who moved to Hanover, N.H., after 11 years in New York City to write a memoir. I was born a Gemini in Youngstown, Ohio, as Elizabeth but became “Betsy” when my parents had a heated argument.
My articles and personal essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Boston Globe, USA Today, The Washington Post, Newsweek and Real Simple. I also wrote a column for Women’s Magazine in Boulder, Colo.
In a past life, I worked as a general assignment reporter for the Associated Press in Athens, Greece, and in Kentucky, then transferred to New York City to cover the financial industry for four years, despite not knowing anything, really, about finance. I earned my bachelor’s degree in psychology from American University and a master’s in journalism from Ohio University.
