“My favorite thing about working with our clients is the ‘small moments.’ Changing long standing patterns is hard, and we often hope for big changes in life. We forget that the small wins along the way are the stepping stones to creating that change. I enjoy celebrating those successes and coming up with creative ways to help you meet those goals.”
Liz enjoys traveling, cooking, and spending quality time with her pups.
