Betsy Parker

Client Success Manager

I am a fun seeker who loves meeting new people, discovering new places and making memories. I recently moved back to Des Moines after 18 years in Ames with my husband, Joe and 3 fur babies: Georgia (Cocker Pug), Hazel (Mini Australian/Pug) and Telly (Run o' the mill jerk kitten). I am also a very honored step-mom to a really cool kid, Ben, who is attending Iowa State University. I adore rust. Weekends are often spent digging through junk shops for the perfect new home décor. My goal is to replace each piece of furniture in my home with a story. My perfect day would include nature, live music, art and laughter. I love to laugh; it is by far my favorite thing to do. To laugh is to live.

You are a superhero. What power would you choose?
Teleportation/Time Travel. I want to see the world through a historical lens!
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
One day, I want to learn to paint, acrylic or water color. I consider it such a gift to be able to inspire others and leave a legacy of beauty.
