Change Makers – Betsy Mayotte

Betsy Mayotte likes to joke that she was genetically destined to work in education finance, with a mom who was a teacher and dad who was the president of a credit union.

But there’s plenty of coincidence in her journey, too. Like when she was fresh out of Bentley University with loan payments looming, and the first good-paying job she found was with a student loan servicer. Or later, when a good boss at a nonprofit student loan guaranty agency let her expand her role as a compliance officer into borrower advocacy.
