Betty is making a difference

Betty Strobel


District Court Judge (retired)

How did you first learn about and begin working with The Avery Center? How long have you been with the organization?

I was referred by a local attorney, who thought I would be interested and I started working with the organization in January 2021.


What's your favorite part/the most fulfilling part of your role?

Learning about the Center’s work against sexual exploitation and trafficking.


What do you enjoy doing when you're not at The Avery Center?

I am retired, which leaves me lots of time to spend with my grandchildren. I work part time as a mediator. I am also on the Board of the Colorado Association of Family and Conciliation Courts and Weld County Legal Services. My hobbies include travel, reading, piano lessons, and spoiling my two basset hounds.


Who is someone you admire, and why?

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. She was a trailblazing female attorney and fought for civil rights throughout her legal career.


Favorite book:

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, by Robert Pirsig.
