Liz was born and raised in Napa, CA. She graduated from Loyola Marymount with a BA in English and Regis University with an MA in Organization Leadership. She met her incredibly amazing and supportive husband, Peter, in Denver in 2009. They were married in 2011, and welcomed a son, Colton, in 2013. After a few more years in Napa, the family moved to Mission Bay and are enjoying exploring their new neighborhood. When Liz isn’t chasing Colton around the playground or swapping make-up tricks with her 13 year old step-daughter, McKinzie, she enjoys reading, baking, eating delicious meals prepared by her Chef husband, and driving to Napa to spend time with family.
