Betty graduated from VGH  in 1956 and with a BSN from UBC in 1957.  From 1978 to 1981, she took her Master’s of Science in Health Services Planning.  She worked mostly as a Public Health Nurse for the City of Vancouver and the Simon Fraser Health Unit, which gave her great career satisfaction.  Professional and community involvement included 25 years on the St. Mary’s Hospital Board where she chaired and participated in numerous committees.  She states that this broadened her appreciation of health care delivery beyond the community level.
