She was born on the 31st day of October 1989 in Purcellville, Virginia, the United States.

She exhibited good writing and reporting skills from then, eventually graduating from Hillsdale College in 2012 with a degree in English. While in college, Betsy also showed elite scholastic abilities which she further utilized as a member of the school’s journalism program and also worked as a writer for several other independent news outlets.

For the first two years after her college education, she worked at the National Review Institute which earned her the William F. Buckley Fellowship. Following up, she landed a job as a political writer for the Washington Examiner and also worked for Toledo Free Press.

In March 2015, she took up the position of a political reporter for The Daily Beast which is a news and opinion website which focuses on politics and pop culture with a smart speedy take on news from around the world. Therein, Betsy Woodruff covers a range of topics from campaigns to Capitol Hills and prevalent political issues. Moreover, she has appeared on other shows on other networks such as MSNBC and Fox Business.

Family, Parents

Betsy hails from a loving and very supportive family headed by Scott Woodruff who she credits with her work ethics. Her mother is Jane Tharp Woodruff, a marketing graduate from the University of Missouri and former bookstore assistant at Patrick Henry College Bookstore who is now a homemaker. The senior Woodruff’s united in marriage on July 9, 1983. While her daughter is greatly taken in by politics and political matter and has even forged a successful career on that pedestal, Jane has a zero interest in politics.

She grew up along with her two siblings, brother Chris who she shares a special bond with and sister, Jane. Chris Woodruff works at Life Raft International as an executive director in Bangkok where he lives with his family whereas Jane Woodruff works at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig and lives in Leesburg, Virginia. Despite the geographical locations and busy work schedules that seem to separate the family members, they still maintain a strong bond which they readily display on social media platforms.

Woodruff seems to be a popular last name as many other personalities are identified by it including American television journalist Bob Woodruff. Still, on family matters, Betsy was mistaken as the daughter of Tusla, Oklahoma native Judy Woodruff, the veteran broadcast journalist who is currently an anchor and managing editor of the PBS NewsHour. Judy has been on the journalism scene since 1976 and has worked in network, cable, and public television news including CNN and NBC.
