Liz was born with a physical deformity and chronic illness. Growing up as a square peg in a world of round holes she developed a passion to live earnestly with a deep appreciation for every moment. While she is grateful, Liz also tirelessly seeks to improve upon and alter the landscape for other artists with disabilities. It is her goal is to create more access and awareness for others to express their true selves through art.
In 2016 Liz found the art of improvisation and the stage (after a career in Special Education and Adaptive Recreation). With her whole heart she said, "Yes, and" to a new passion and has been in the comedy flow ever since. Liz is passionate about the art of improvisation because It is all about making choices on the fly while living in the present, with one goal: to connect with others.

She is an alumni of The Second City Conservatory (Chicago), iO Chicago, The Annoyance Theater (Chicago), and The Bovine Metropolis Theater (Denver, CO).

In gratitude with love, Liz
