Welcome to the Hypersomnia Foundation Board, Betsy!

Welcome to the Hypersomnia Foundation Board, Betsy!

We are delighted to welcome Elizabeth (Betsy) Ashcraft to our Board of Directors. “Betsy has long been a supporter of the Hypersomnia Foundation, and we are excited to have someone with her talent and experience join the Board,” said Diane Powell, current HF Chair and CEO.

Betsy AshcraftBetsy is an attorney who practiced law for over 20 years in California, Washington, D.C, and Hong Kong, specializing in securities and corporate litigation, and capital markets. Following graduation from Harvard Law School, she worked for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, then later became a partner at the Washington, D.C. office of Kirkland & Ellis. After leaving K&E, she taught at the law school of George Mason University in Virginia, and then worked for Bank of America and Mees Pierson/Fortis in Hong Kong. She is licensed to practice law in California, Washington, D.C., Kentucky and Texas.

Since retiring from law practice, she has volunteered at a variety of non-profit organizations, including arts groups, educational organizations, religious bodies, and animal rescue groups. In 2014, one of her adult sons was diagnosed with idiopathic hypersomnia, thus triggering her interest in the mission of the Hypersomnia Foundation and the research being conducted in the hypersomnia field.
