Jennifer Bott is the first recipient of the Betsy O’Leary Abelson Parent’s Spirit Award. She is pictured here with Better & Faster Together’s co-founder, Stuart Abelson.

Bott is an attorney, but mostly (and certainly most importantly) she is a mother to three amazing girls who love nothing better than being on snow. Two are alpine racers with Gould, one does recreational ski and snowboard programs at Sunday River. Several seasons ago, her family moved to the Sunday River area for the entire winter (as opposed to just weekends) so that their oldest could be a day student Gould Academy for Winter Term. Bott then met Betsy and Stuart and feels blessed to have called Betsy one of her best friends. “What I bring to the table is mainly just my love for Betsy (and gratitude for who she was and what she represented), my kids, Gould, and the snow,” says Bott. “Betsy was a fantastic role model for parenting children in a competitive sport, for supporting one’s community, for changing the world for the better, one small action at a time.  I am really excited to be part of Better & Faster Together.”
