Betty Bloom

Heather Sees

Betty has been fortunate to have lived and traveled to many areas of our beautiful country. She has also been able to experience an abundance of adventures on this spectacular journey. While living in the Southern California area, Betty purchased her first home, a 33 ft sailboat! When she was not working as an RN at the Children’s Hospital in San Diego, Betty spent her time sailing and racing on the waters of San Diego Harbor. After moving to the beautiful mountains of Central PA, Betty's husband introduced her to fly fishing. While raising their family, fly fishing was put on hold, however; they were able to introduce their two sons to fishing, hiking and outdoor activities that PA has to offer. Betty’s husband retired from DCNR 9 years ago and they returned to his hometown of State College (and PSU). Betty retired from Mt. Nittany Medical Center 2 years ago.

About, 5 years ago, she was introduced to the Women Anglers Group and SCCTU by Jean Brenchley. Most recently, Betty was able to attend the SCCTU VSP Fly Fishing 101 and the Women’s Intro. to Fly Fishing course through the PA Fish and Boat Commission. Both programs as well as outings with the Women Anglers have complimented her fly fishing skills. Unfortunately, the trout haven’t been too impressed...yet! Betty would be honored to join the members of the SCCTU board as she is respectful of the philosophy and mission of conservation, fly fishing and community in hopes that our beautiful streams and all they support are here for future generations.
