Since then Betsy has taken on a bigger role and a range of the types of subjects that need to be discussed.

She will always bring awareness concerning caregivers but also will seek out the subjects and topics that one does not hear a lot on Internet Radio. She interviews, Doctors, Lawyers, Authors, Advocates, Celebrities, Entrepreneurs, and more. We could have added more but, wanted to provide some examples of the interviews Betsy has handled.
