Elizabeth got her start in communications during a summer internship at the Clinton White House. Working in the press office awoke her passion for media relations, so she went back to DC the next summer and interned in the U.S. Senate.
She then received her master’s degree at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania where she spent her summers in DC as Assistant to the Press Secretary for a U.S. Representative in the House.

She then left D.C. to pursue a doctoral program in Rhetoric at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. For the next 12 years, she taught rhetoric at the college level, even winning Teacher of the Year in 2016.
