Betsy“The purpose of life is not only to be happy….it is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

The above quote is what I think of when I think of Betsy Davis. She routinely goes ABOVE and BEYOND her duties at Kensington Park. A good example is her continued passion for all the fundraising efforts at Kensington Park for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s Disease. Most important is her sense of duty and volunteerism. Betsy teaches a resident photograph class
and has done so for many years prior to her role as Move-In Coordinator at Kensington Park. She takes her own time to plan her class and each year enters every resident photograph in the Montgomery County Fair! Their art has won many ribbons year after year. Betsy loves bringing joy to others all year long, but especially around the holidays. At every celebration, she is always present to take photos of residents and families together, as those are such special memories that will be cherished for many years to come. A bit about Betsy: born and raised in Montgomery County MD, she learned from her parents the importance of doing good for others. She attended Montgomery Blair High School, graduated from Towson University, MD and took on a career as a Police Officer with Montgomery County, MD. Through Betsy’s dedication and hard work, she ultimately ended her career after a long tenure as the Assistant Chief of Police for Montgomery County, MD. Betsy’s expertise and leadership have a positive impact in the lives of our residents at Kensington Park and we are very fortunate that she is part of our team and family. It is obvious that Betsy enjoys serving others and she continues to do so each and every day at Kensington Park. Her generosity, consideration and thoughtfulness of others is what makes her very special. Betsy, you are a true hero in our eyes! And finally, an ending quote to capture Betsy’s giving spirit: “You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” – John Bunyan
