Betties360 Board of Directors

Shana (Davis) Barnes, President

Shana began her adventures at a young age, tackling acrobatic sports such as gymnastics and springboard diving. After living in both New York City and rural Japan, her love for rock climbing brought her to Portland, Oregon. She was introduced to the Betties at a local fundraiser, volunteered as a mentor on the 2008 BettiesRock! trip, and suddenly found herself completely inspired by the magic of Betties360. Shana created the website, and loves to hit The Circuit Bouldering Gym with anyone who’d like to try climbing!


Leslie Trabant

Leslie Trabant, Program Coordinator

Being an active part of Betties360 is a dream come true for me. My background as a high school teacher working with at-risk students and my endurance athletic career combine perfectly for working with this amazing group of girls and women. My goal is to help Betties360 move forward as they grow and expand as a nonprofit that inspires women of all ages to participate in active sports and outdoor adventures. There is so much potential for the future of Betties360, and I am thankful for this opportunity.

Rebecca loves being involved in her community and participating in sports. From a young age, she’s been involved in a variety of sports including swimming, cross country, gymnastics, martial arts, ice skating, cheerleading, rock climbing, and crew. She shared her passion for sports by starting an Outdoors Page in her college newspaper, as well as teaching fitness classes and serving as a personal trainer. Rebecca’s team spirit, enthusiasm, and keen attention to numbers are a great fit for Betties, and landed her the role as Treasurer.

 Erin Fitzgerald

Erin Fitzgerald, Marketing Coordinator

Erin has been a board member since August 2011 and is excited about the opportunity to be part of this important organization. Since a child, Erin always preferred being outside, and as an adult, she feeds her love for the outdoors and athleticism through trail running, yoga, tennis, and adventure travel. Her favorite race is the Pikes Peak Marathon in Colorado, a challenging trail run that exceeds 14,000 feet in elevation. And of course, she can’t wait to take a Betties group out on a long (or even short), muddy trail run!
