Betsy moved to Gainesville in 1974. After graduating from Buchholz High School, she left Gainesville to pursue a business education at Duke University and a MBA in marketing from The Wharton School of Business. After a twelve year career in pharmaceutical marketing research and consulting, she returned to her hometown Gainesville and pursued her interest in real estate. Having been a real estate investor for years, she turned her passion into a career by becoming a full-time Realtor.

Betsy soon became a broker, opened Pepine Realty in 2010 and began building a robust real estate team, helping families and businesses with their relocation, second-home purchases, primary residences and office spaces. Her team stays very active in the community, volunteering regularly in the communities that have supported them. In 2017, Betsy opened Gator Title and in 2018, Betsy established Pepine Gives, a 501c3 non-profit foundation whose mission is to improve and empower the lives of the undeserved in her community. In 2019, Betsy opened Motto Mortgage Integrity to serve borrowers in Florida. A loan originator herself, Betsy employs an experienced staff of loan originators to facilitate clients’ mortgages.

Personally, Betsy is an active volunteer in the community, earning her the Impact Award in 2016 by Business in the Heart of Gainesville. Betsy has served on numerous boards and has been active teaching Gainesville's youth at church, assisting with homelessness in the community, is a board member of Alachua Habitat for Humanity and has raised several guide dogs for the blind. In her free time, she enjoys real estate investing, running, pickleball and traveling. Most importantly, Betsy has two daughters and several rescue dogs with whom she devotes significant time.
