Elizabeth joined our team in late 2016. She is a native of New Jersey, but decided that she would trade the cold snow for the warm beaches. She formerly attended the University of New England, where she studied Animal Behavior and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree. While attending college, Elizabeth worked at a marine animal rehabilitation center and interned at a veterinary specialist hospital. After graduating from college, she moved from New England to Kentucky, where she worked as an adoption coordinator for a local shelter. Elizabeth quickly found that Kentucky was not the place for her to stay long-term. In August 2016, she accepted a wildlife intern position with the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. It was there that she found her true passion for wildlife and veterinary medicine. In her free time, Elizabeth likes to visit the beach, relax outdoors, and scuba dive. She also enjoys spending time with her American Eskimo, Sterling.
