Office Coordinator

Office Coordinator Betty Bailey was born and raised just outside of Philadelphia in Delaware County, and except while attending Penn State in State College, PA and California College of San Diego in California, has lived her whole life within a two-mile radius of her childhood home. She has had a varied career, but whether she was working behind a desk in customer service or behind a stethoscope in health care, the common denominator has always been helping others.

Betty’s son Edgar is carrying on the family tradition at Penn State. When he manages to make it home, they enjoy attending flea markets, museums, and musical theater together. Betty also volunteers for several civic and non-profit groups and is active in local politics.
