Betsy McDonald moved from Pensacola, FL to New Bern, NC in January 2019 and joined Habitat for Humanity of Craven County in February 2019. While studying political science in graduate school, Betsy knew she wanted to work in the non-profit sector in order to make the world a better place but she was unsure what that would look like as a career. Finally, 4 years later Betsy got the opportunity to work for HFHCC and has not looked back! Betsy is the Homeowner Services Coordinator and is primarily responsible for home mortgage loan origination and servicing, program applications and underwriting, homebuyer education, and providing support for HFHCC partner families and homeowners. Betsy enjoys working alongside prospective homeowners as they work towards achieving homeownership and leading homebuyer education classes. Betsy enjoys being active and exploring the state of NC, reading all of the books, and tending to her growing house plant collection!
