Eliza grew up in Portland and is a graduate of Jesuit High School. She attended UCLA on a full scholarship for swimming & then attended the University of Hawaii, finishing out her swimming career and obtaining her BA in Sociology. Her most exciting personal sport achievement was attending the Olympic Training facility in Colorado Springs for a National Camp with the top 20 USA female swimmers when she was 16 years old & qualifying for the Olympic Trials.
She married her best friend and college love, Brenton, who played volleyball at UH and then played on the pro-circuit. His career allowed for travel to Europe, Hermosa Beach, & Las Vegas, where Eliza finished out her Master’s Degree in Counseling and practiced with Girls & Boys Town as an in-home therapist.
When TAI Lake Oswego opened in 2009, Eliza jumped at the opportunity for an interview & to move back to Portland. She moved back in 2009 and has been with the company since Lake Oswego opened its doors.
She now resides in Lake Oswego with her husband and 2 sons, Liam & River. She enjoys camping, traveling, spending time with her family, and an occasional glass of wine!
