About Betsy


Betsy Jabola

Betsy’s focus is on the art and science of brain function showing the “WHY we do what we do” behind the “WHO we are.”  Betsy combines contagious passion and delightful entertainment to communicate powerful truths about YOU! Once you understand, accept and apply this knowledge, you’ll discover the amazing freedom and ease of being who you really are and will begin to see the unique qualities in others and be able to affirm and build positive connections.

For the last 2 years, Betsy has had the privilege of learning from and being mentored by Dr. Arlene Taylor, one of the world’s leading speakers on brain function, who is sometimes referred to as the brain guru. Betsy is constantly studying to learn all she can in this intriguing area of neuroscience and brain function.  When she presents, her goal is to keep her presentations  simple, straightforward, and user friendly with practical applications.

In 1977, Betsy graduated from Loma Linda Univ. School of Nursing with her Bachelors in Science.  She worked for 10 years as a Neonatal I.C.U. nurse at Loma Linda University Medical Center.  Since 1994, Betsy has been a Certified Personality Trainer presenting is such areas as: the healthcare and academic arenas; children, women, and family groups; and various business settings. Betsy has served on the CLASS (Christian Leaders Authors & Speakers Seminars) faculty, specifically on their Advanced Personality Training team.  She complemented their workshop by teaching from the perspective of brain function to add the “WHY FACTOR” behind the WHO one really is.


It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are. ~E.E. Cummings

How many times have you wondered who in the world you really are? Is that person you portray really you, or is it someone that you’ve been told to become; then try so hard to be?

Betsy knows what it feels like to be a stranger in her own mind and body, asking herself, “Who is that person inside there?  Why do I feel like I’m not doing things the right way?”  Then one day she discovered the “Why” behind the “Who” question, and discovered a whole new world of potentiality. It was like someone gave her a new pair of glasses and when she put them on, she suddenly saw clearly for the first time in her life, the person God really made her to be.

Now Betsy is passionate about sharing “these glasses” with others so they, too, can see their own promise of possibilities.  Discovering who she was freed her from feeling like a prisoner of “perfection” and transformed her marriage relationship from one of friction to freedom. Whether dealing with a spouse, family member, friend, colleague or client, all relationships are strengthened and enhanced and communication is improved when you understand and allow them to be who they really are.

Betsy Jabola is an engaging, entertaining, heartwarming and motivating speaker, certified personality trainer, storyteller and ventriloquist and most recently is teaching the physiology aspect behind our personality.  Her passion in life is to motivate and influence others to discover their innate God-given strengths and live life to their fullest potential with purpose…being the very best they can be.

One of the most important factors in her life is her family. Betsy is happily married and thriving with her sweetheart, Rodney Jabola.  Rodney is a Radiation Oncologist at Loma Linda University Medical Center whose specialty is treating Prostate Cancer with the Proton Beam.  They have one son, Andrew,  who is a Senior Structural Analysis Engineer at Structural Design and Analysis presently working at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.  Andrew is married to Jessica Jabola, who is presently finishing up her fourth year of residency in obstetrics/ gynecology at the Reading Hospital and Medical Center in Reading, PA.
