Director of Resource Development
Betsy raises funds to make sure the staff at Mount Evans is here to take care of everyone in our community for in-home medical needs whether you are in a car accident, have a serious illness, or need end-of-life hospice care. “Last year, our clinical team conducted over 25,000 patient visits across a four-county service area regardless of the patient’s ability to pay. There is a good chance someone near you has received our services. Join me in donating to Mount Evans!”
Q: What is your role at Mount Evans?A: My job is to raise money to support the staff and operations at Mount Evans. Insurance does not cover all of the expenses, and Public Support covers the gap and enables us to invest in the business of in-home health care. I am in charge of all of the fundraising—individual and corporate gifts, events, and grants.
Q: How long have you been with Mount Evans?
A: I have been with Mount Evans for just over a year, and I love it. To be able to raise money to make sure everyone in our community has the option of in-home health care when they need it is a blessing. Giving back to our community and doing things to benefit others every day—how can you top that?
Q: Why did you want to work at Mount Evans Home Health Care & Hospice?
A: I have lived in the mountain community for over 25 years and have always known that the atmosphere for staff at Mount Evans is like being part of a family. A family that takes care of our community is a great place to work. There is a special feeling in the halls of Mount Evans. A feeling of being blessed to be a part of it and no kidding, it is an honor to come to work here every day.
Q: What does it mean to you to serve our mountain residents?
A: It is important to me to give back to the community in which I live. Whether it be volunteering for PTA, sports teams, girls scouts, local nonprofits, promoting businesses through the Chamber of Commerce, or raising money for in-home health care. I am proud to be a part of the mountain community and enjoy doing what I can to make it better each and every day.
Q: Do you feel like you make a difference in the lives of patients?
A: My work ensures that the staff at Mount Evans exists to take care of anyone in the mountain community that needs us. It is a rewarding experience, and I am thrilled to be raising money for the organization.
Q: Describe a moment from your job that touched your heart?
A: Every time I hear a story about how Mount Evans has helped a local family, it touches my heart. Whether we helped when a family member was dying at home or helped someone recover from a terrible accident with our in-home health care services, it makes me proud of where I work.
Q: Not all health care organizations are equal, what do you think that makes Mount Evans special?
A: Our clinical staff are some of the most caring people I know. When I hear them talk about care plans for individuals and the work they do or what it meant to them to be a part of a family’s journey to end of life for a loved one, the care they have for patients is clear and so special to witness.
