Betty Franklin Profile

Betty Franklin, RN
Author, Coach

Betty has served more than 40 years on the frontlines of Health Care. On the teams at Toronto SickKids Hospital, Trillium Health Partners, South Muskoka Memorial Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital and the James Bay Weeneebayko Area Health Authority, she gained a deep appreciation for “whole person wellness.”

Betty is a long-standing member of the RNAO together with its Community Health Nurses Interest Group, and its Independent Practice Nurses Interest Group. Throughout her varied and extensive career, she also found time to volunteer with many charities and various work-related committees.

Betty’s broad nursing experience, coupled with her personal journey through a mental illness diagnosis, resulted in a transition from providing critical care in response to illness and disease, to one where she attacks disease on its true “frontline” – providing education and motivation that prevents the onset of disease in the first place. Now, as a nurse in independent practice, Betty provides a unique health promotion program that offers a holistic approach to living life well and staying healthy, by emphasizing mental fitness as a means to minimize the need for intrusive medicine and maximize personal effectiveness in relationships and careers.

A published author and certified coach, Betty works with individuals, corporate employees, business owners, teachers, healthcare workers and social service providers. She is available for one on one coaching, inspirational and thought-provoking talks, workshops and retreats all of which are empowered by her book “GUTS, Get Uncomfortable to Succeed – Embracing Health, Balance and Abundance.”

Betty is passionate about motivating people to take command of their life and well-being through a holistic approach that transforms lives from Good, to Better, to Best! In doing so, she challenges her Clients to be accountable for their lifestyle. She encourages them to be self-aware and take charge as she supports, guides and empowers them to achieve their potential.
