Liz grew up in a small town in LaSalle County, 80 miles west of Chicago. Her high school may have been small, but the Music programs, both instrumental and vocal, were strong, and Liz thrived, learning as much as she could about Music before attending Millikin University, where she studied Vocal Performance. She completed her Graduate work at Northern Illinois University. Although her focus in the early years was on Opera, she never lost her deep love of Music Theater.

Liz raised four boys and worked for years in corporate jobs, but a strong desire to return to finish what she started years before persisted. The excitement of telling a story, creating a character, building relationships on stage, and feeling a tremendous sense of accomplishment when the curtain falls, Liz is once again reconnected to a path she started years ago.

With her kids grown, she’s back on stage, tackling challenging roles in the Midwest, enjoying success in both Chicago and Milwaukee.
