Who is Betsy?

The story of how I named my company is one of my most favorite stories to tell. Who is Betsy? While Betsy isn’t a real person, she does represent two very influential women in my life: my grandmothers.

My Grammy has always been a steward of social etiquette. Holiday dinners at her home were always a fancy affair and my sister and I learned at a young age how to set a formal place setting. She taught me the importance of etiquette.


My Mimi was a firecracker. She was constantly telling jokes and keeping people on their toes. She taught me that you have to have FUN in life. It’s ok to be a little sassy now and then.

Meet Betsy!

Together, my grandmothers taught me that you must always know the etiquette for the party you’re walking into and once you’re there, make sure you have some fun too. I’ve taken this lesson and applied it to much of my life. And, I find that it applies particularly well to social media. Because, after all, we are still talking to people on the other side of that tweet, now, aren’t we.
