Hello, my name is Elisa R. Betson. I am a born and raised Alaskan who is a single mother of two teenagers. I have always had a passion for helping others who need help caring for themselves. Some of my background includes being a nursing assistant and a special education teacher’s assistant. In October of 2013 I was hired by Focus, Inc. as a care provider and a job coach. This position brought me great joy and fulfillment knowing that I was assisting others becoming more independent and accomplishing their goals. I took great pride in that job as well as my current job. In April of 2018, through online schooling, I became a Registered Behavior Analyst for Focus, Inc. This allows me to do therapy sessions with autistic children. I work with an amazing team, and truly love this job. Making a positive impact in other’s lives puts a smile on my face. I truly believe I am doing what God intended. In my spare time I like to spend time with my blessed children and family doing activities that us Alaskans do. I also am very involved with my church family community.
