Liz is originally from Michigan and spent her life playing competitive sports. She played volleyball as her main sport through high school and college and after that, began training for her first NPC Bikini show. After over a year of competing in physique shows, she discovered a CrossFit gym near her home town of Lansing, MI in 2013 and shifted her focus to CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting.

Coaching has always been a passion for Elizabeth. She has been coaching volleyball for 10 years and has been the head Junior Varsity coach for Tampa Preparatory School since 2014, head coach for a club volleyball team with Orlando/Tampa Volleyball Academy (OTVA), and is an instructor during competitive volleyball camps at the University of Tampa. She has also spent two years working as a Strength and Conditioning Coach for a Division 3 college in Michigan, coached group fitness classes and weekly barbell classes in a CrossFit environment since 2015, and has coached Keep Pulling athletes at multiple local, state, and national-level Weightlifting competitions.

Elizabeth currently works full-time as a science teacher at a magnet/pre-IB middle school in the Tampa Bay Area in addition to chasing her passion for coaching.
