Elizabeth grew up on Mercer Island, WA. After graduating from Stanford University with a B.A. in Human Biology, she worked with midwives in Kentucky and at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Breast Care Center before deciding to pursue a career in medicine. She went to medical school and did an internal medicine residency at UCSF and then worked at the UCSF/SF Veterans Affairs Hospital. After having her first child, she and her husband decided to move back to Seattle to be closer to family. In 2010, she was thrilled to return to the Mercer Island community to raise her children after having such a positive experience growing up here. She now works as an internist and medical educator at the University of Washington School of Medicine. She is passionate about women’s health, health education, and cancer survivorship and is also an active volunteer at her children’s schools. She is the proud mom of 2 elementary aged girls and enjoys spending time with friends and family, hiking, camping and being outdoors.
