About Elizabeth

Elizabeth is known for immediately inspiring confidence in audiences with her warmth and expertise – and loves to debunk the myth that you must lead a charmed life in order to be optimistic, bold, and successful. She has graced the stages of professional associations, women’s leadership conferences, non-profits, corporate and chambers of commerce – helping these audiences incorporate practical optimism into their work and lives.

Her deep background in event planning, strategic consulting, and operational management allows her to connect swiftly and build relationships with audiences. Elizabeth graduated from Pepperdine University with a degree in Business Administration and Non-Profit Services.

Elizabeth harnesses optimism as a key tenet of her message as an eloquent speaker, wise coach, and encouraging mentor. I continue to be impressed with the manner in which she innovates around this key concept in her teaching and education of others. She will leave you inspired to change the world.
