Betty was born in Calexico, California and lived in Imperial Valley. Her family relocated to San Diego, California in 1969, where she graduated from Grossmont High School in 1977. Her first job out of high school was with a small Insurance Agency which started her career in the insurance industry. In 1999 her brother-in-law, the late Carl Flick, a well-known attorney in the Las Vegas area, told her to pack up her daughter and all of her belongings and move to Las Vegas, as there was a great need for good Legal Secretaries.
She relocated to Las Vegas and attended UNLV, where she received her Nevada Legal Secretary Certificate. In December of 1999, she was hired as a legal secretary with Staff Counsel for Zurich North America in Las Vegas. In 2001, her Managing Attorney relocated her and her family to Reno, Nevada where she helped with setting up and running the Reno Staff Legal Office for Zurich North America. In 2001, she obtained her Paralegal Studies Certificate at the University of Nevada, Reno.
In 2009 her work brought her back to Las Vegas where she continued to work in the Legal Industry. In April 2015, she joined Craig P. Kenny & Associates as a Paralegal. Betty works in our litigation department. With over 17 years of experience, she is a great asset to our firm.
Betty is an animal lover, and loves to spend time with her dog Shadow. She also enjoys spending time with her daughter Justina, and grandchildren D’Andre and Justice.
