Betsy Crawford is the Development Coordinator for Florida State's College of Communication and Information, and manages the implementation of development strategies and goals for the College when she isn't spearheading graduate recruitment.   Betsy began her career in the field of archaeology, working as a Crew Chief for the Archaeological Research Lab at Virginia Commonwealth University and becoming the Collections Manager at the James River Institute of Archaeology. She transitioned into a more administrative career path upon moving to Tallahassee in 1993 to pursue a post-graduate degree in Historic Administration and Public History at Florida State University, and has been invested in people ever since.   Spending nearly ten years as a Museum Educator, three years as an associate teacher and four years as a Special Events Coordinator, Betsy has dedicated herself to developing public programs and managing special events, working with the Museum of Florida History, the School of Arts and Sciences, and even Florida State's own news conglomerate, WFSU.
