Elizabeth is a Washington native who moved to Wenatchee in 2011. She is happily married to her best friend Andy and together they have two young children. She is a stay at home mom who wouldn’t want to spend her days any other way. She is a self proclaimed “over sharer” who enjoys documenting her family’s day to day life on Instagram, often joking that her children are the most photographed kids in history. Her husband and her children are the center of her universe and if she had any free time, she’d choose to spend it with them. Her family is everything, but she manages to squeeze in some time for football too. She is a lifelong Seahawks fan whose favorite time of year has always been football season and when she’s not cheering on her Hawks, she enjoys watching her husband play for the Wenatchee Valley Rams.
