Betty Van Zant
Seasonal Team Member

Betty has been a part of Team Zeller since the very beginning. Affectionately known as “Mama Bear,” Betty is indeed Tracy’s mom! Assisting at TZj seasonally and with large projects through the year, she graciously steps in to help whenever Team Zeller needs.

After finishing her nursing degree at the University of Evansville, she worked for Baxter International and the Bayer Corporation. For Betty, 2009 was a year of change as she retired, got married and adopted her tuxedo cat, Kit-Kat Van-Burdon.

Betty and her husband, Tom Burdon, enjoy golfing new courses as they travel the country. A favorite destination for travel with beautiful scenery, friendly people and great golf is Hawaii. Betty is also active in her church, as a community volunteer and in a weekly Bible study.
