Why Do I Do What I Do?

Betsy
“I have been consistently drawn to this field almost as a magnet as though it was what it was I was meant to do. I have worked in multiple other fields at the same time as the DD fields, and yet I come back time and time again. The sense of accomplishment and peace I feel from bringing additional life skills to my clients is more important to me than the money I would be earning in other fields.”
— Betsy Buswell, Program Manager
