Betty has had a vision of a complete wellness center through many modalities of healthcare, from which WHO (Wellness Health Options) has emerged.  She focuses on the wholistic treatment of the body, mind & spirit through several types of massage and health consultations.

Past teachers include Joan Borysenko, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Caroline Myss, Andrew Weil, Shatki Gwain, Bernie Siegel and many others.

Betty firmly believes that it is important to stay abreast of current issues and methods of integrative healthcare.  She therefore finds it necessary to be away from her practice several times a year in order to continue to update her continuing education hours.  It is her priority to educate her community and add to the variety of alternative/integrative healthcare services and to make those services available to her community.
