Her Burlesque career began late in the summer of 2014 when she joined the Cherry Girls to perform weekly shows at the Yellowhead Casino. The Casino troupe branched out to the Edmonton and Calgary burlesque communities to help fill solo spots and this is how she met two beautiful troupe members of RCR, Kiki Quinn and Forbsie Flare! Betsy felt instantly drawn to the duo and wanted to dive deeper into the Edmonton world of Burlesque!
After the casino gig ran it's course Betsy went to audition for RCR and shared her solo Uptown Funk to the group. Thankfully they enjoyed and had a giggle too!
