Liz loves calligraphy, volleyball, and being in the mountains. She is married to Noel and they have five children.

“I have had great role models in education my whole life, starting with my own parents and grandparents. I have had many amazing mentors in this district, and I feel immense gratitude for the patience and wisdom of my colleagues,” said Liz. “I am excited about my new adventure! I look forward to adding a little red to my wardrobe! Go Panthers!”
