Bethany (also known as Betty) is from Minnesota! Growing up in "The Land of 10,000 Lakes" included annual summer trips up to Lake Superior and the North Shore, where she developed a love for hiking and the outdoors.  More recently, she discovered an interest in wild flower identification and a love for kayaking.  Betty has been on San Juan Island mostly year round since 2016 and is returning for her 5th summer season. During the quiet season, she has managed to spend some time traveling internationally, with visits to Nepal, New Zealand and Vietnam.  

If she's not at work, typically you'll find Betty whipping up a sweet treat, hiking with her camera and plant identification book, sneaking in some time on the water or enjoying a chat at a local coffee shop.
