if SYNTHESIS means: “the creation of an integrated whole by the combining of simpler parts or entities” – then, Betsy is a SYNTHESIST: the creator of that integrated whole.

– Tia Salmela Keoubounpheng, Silver Cocoon

Betsy understands that my life is integral to my work. That what I really want is to better align what I can imagine and what I have to do. Betsy guides clients through a thoughtful, careful process of choosing where to put our attention. And once our attention is on the right ideas, big things happen.
