After graduating from the Writing Seminars program at Johns Hopkins University, Elizabeth answered the question everyone had been asking—What are you going to do with a degree in that? Since she had interned for literary agencies around Washington, D.C., she knew she probably should not sit around waiting for her short stories to get published. Instead, she jumped into grant writing and the freelance world. Then, for three years before coming to Patch, she edited the local and health sections for the Erickson Tribune, a national newspaper for older adults. Having lived in Florida, where she won her first writing award at the tender age of 9 (shout-out to Cricket magazine!), she found covering seniors felt like home. Still, she loves telling stories of all kinds. Her most devout reader is cat Gray Bear, who likes to watch articles as they are being written and handle interference from dog Majesty, whose contributions often read something like zsldfjdsapf.
