Betty comes from a background in art and drama with a BFA in Theatre from Clarke University and a MFA in Theatre Set Design from the Ohio State University. After graduating, she focused on her acting, modeling, and voice-over careers, performing in over 200 industrial films, radio and television commercials. At the same time, she started the Actors and Directors Studio, an acting workshop, and the Slice of Life Theatre, a theatre company, which produced full length plays and original one acts. Her theatre efforts were recognized when Betty received a Jaycees 10 Outstanding Citizen's Award. Betty's film casting credits include “IT RUNS IN THE FAMILY”, “BEST OF THE BEST III”, “ATTICA”, and “CRAZY FOR A KISS”. As an outgrowth of the acting workshop and the Slice of Life Theatre, Betty founded Creative Talent Company, a full-service talent agency in Columbus, Ohio and soon after, opened in Cincinnati, Ohio. Creative Talent Company was sold in 1998 and Midwest Talent Management in Los Angeles was started.
Betty manages a select well nurtured and cared for group of actors, many from the Midwest. Midwest Talent actors work in all aspects of the entertainment industry: film, music videos, print work, commercials, infomercials, theatre, trade shows, animation, voice-over work, live appearances, series regular, lead, guest star, co-star and supporting roles. Adjectives that best describe Betty are enthusiastic, concerned, detailed and tenacious. As talent manager, website producer, active volunteer and member of the Talent Managers Association, Betty likes to help make things happen. She is a service person.
