Aaniin / Sheku swakweku (hello everyone). My name is Renee Betters and I am the newly hired Child Support Specialist for the Lac Courte Oreilles Child Support Program.
I am an Oneida Nation Tribal member and previously lived in Oneida, WI, before moving to LCO 4 years ago. I am engaged to a wonderful man and have 3 beautiful children ages 13, 8 and 2.
Before taking on the LCOCSS position, I have worked for the LCO Tribe for nearly 4 years. I also have a combined 15+ years with the Oneida Nation in the gaming and retail industry. I worked for Irene Hill with the Oneida COP's Program. The COP Program allowed for me to be able to do respite work and take care of my grandmother, helping her meet her personal and medical needs as a disabled Elder.
My education: Before moving to LCO, I attended NWTC in Marinette, WI. Due to personal and family needs I was unable to complete my degree. However, I hope to be able to continue my education here and finish my college requirements to obtain a degree in IT-developer or change course to Business Management.
I have a strong work ethic and am passionate in all I do. I am excited to begin my new journey with the LCO Child Support Program and will strive to maintain excellent customer service, as well as meeting the needs to participants to the best of my ability. Chi Miigwech / Yaw^ko (thank you) for your time.
