In Betty’s own words about her job for the Governor.   “I manage his schedule, reach out to the points of contacts who are asking for appointments, I document all those requests, meet with staff members.  I also attend executive meetings with the Governor to find out which events he would attend and which ones which he would attend at a later time due to schedule conflicts or travels. Besides, I attend meetings outside the office setting.  I attend those outside meetings as the representative from the Governor’s office.  This is a very busy office and I love it!”
