Originally from Iowa, Elizabeth now lives in Kansas City with her husband and four children. She has a job she loves as Ambassador and engagement Coordinator for Be the Bridge, a non-profit organization founded by Latasha Morrison, that is equipping people to work toward racial reconciliation. Her work with Be the Bridge allows her to teach online classes, tell the stories of how people's churches, schools, and communities are changing, and interact with a group of over 20,000 fellow bridge builders in the organization's Facebook group. She also volunteers as a CASA (court appointed special advocate) for children in foster care. When she isn't busy with work and volunteering, she can be found being rejuvenated by reading, gardening, or if she's lucky, traveling.
