The Who, What, & Why:

Local Betty is the brain-child of Anne Lyon and Susan Boyd. Inspiration for the site comes from our love of the community, desire to live more locally, and commitment to share information that helps us all navigate the little stuff with a bit more inspiration. Because when you think about it, life is made up of the little stuff. Finding the humor, embracing the exasperation, and recognizing the grace in every day is what makes it sweet.

Anne moved to Hingham from Seattle and after {partially} recovering from culture-shock, immediately realized that she needed a Betty- badly. She's worked as a fashion designer, creative director and ecommerce content director. Yes, she was the one with the hairbrained idea who roped Susan and David into putting on this show.

Susan is a third generation realtor who lived in Bronxville NY, New Canaan CT, Asheville NC, and Wellesley MA before landing in Hingham. Blonde Betty {as she is better known} is the go-to on what's what in Hingham. Honestly, the site would just be a lot of whining about the weather without her wit and guidance. Have a question about Hingham or the South Shore? She's your Betty.

David Ekizian- Although he's not technically a Betty, we have to give a shout out to DE. David designed the site and Betty would not be what it is without the wit and prodigious creativity of the talented Mr. Ekizian. He's a graphic designer, brand developer, interiors consultant and without doubt, one of the funniest people we know.

Many thanks to the wonderful and wise Hingham and Cohassetites who have contributed to the site.
