A Spring Valley native, Bettyann has resided in the Henry area for thirty years.  During that time, she has made a home with her husband John, with whom they have raised four children.  She obtained a B.S Degree in Biology, Psychology and Education from Eureka College and has served professionally as a Developmental Therapist in Early Intervention as well as a Science Teacher at Hall High School. She and her children were very involved in 4-H, as participants, a Club Leader, Superintendent and Judge from time to time. She was also involved in Bible School and Conservation Gardening at both Depue and Hall High Schools.

Bettyann has a deep appreciation for the natural world and enjoys spending time in nature. Gardening and nature have always been a passion, and she is driven to understand the interactions and balance of the living things around us.  Serving in this capacity will be a wonderful opportunity to partner with others who share common interests and continue to learn more each day.
