Elizabeth graduated from the University of Minnesota Duluth with a degree in vocal music education and a Minnesota teaching license. She went on to receive her Waldorf teaching certification from the Waldorf Teacher Education program in Eugene, Oregon.
Elizabeth taught K–8 music in Minneapolis charter schools for three years, and while she found the work extremely satisfying, she still felt there was something missing. Elizabeth was introduced to Waldorf education at Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School in Viroqua, Wisconsin and felt an immediate sense of awe. This initial visit led her to seek out Waldorf education and eventually to MWS where the sense of awe continues to grow.
Outside of school, Elizabeth enjoys fishing, making pickles, singing, and reading books of all kinds. She would like to someday visit every national park, even the ones in Alaska!
