Liz was born and raised near Des Moines, Iowa, where she eventually started her career as a cosmetologist. This took her to Colorado where she owned her own business, became a consultant for a leading hair care company, and explored life in the mountains. Liz’s love of travel inspired her move to Kwajalein in the Marshall Islands. There she worked for nearly 10 years, spending countless hours investigating the pristine waters and aquatic life. Camping on uninhabited islands, snorkeling, and kiteboarding easily became her favorite pastimes. Upon leaving the islands she resumed her academic education and has been spending winters teaching snowboarding. Liz is looking forward to sharing the experience of a lifetime with you at Snorkel Alaska.
