Elizabeth was born in McMinnville, Oregon. After high school she went to Walla Walla University in Washington. She then attended Lane Community College in Eugene and earned a degree as a Physical Therapist Assistant.
Elizabeth knew she wanted to be involved in physical therapy from a young age. Her brother was born with Cerebral Palsy. She grew up witnessing how physical therapy was able to make a difference in his life. It allowed him to be as independent as possible and she knew she wanted to help others in a similar way. She is passionate about people and helping them return to the activities they wish to perform.
When she is not helping patients, she enjoys spending time with her family, hiking, camping, and of course, enjoying the Oregon Coast.
