From the Provider

“I hope that every woman who comes to see me leaves feeling more invested in her health than when she came in, and that she now has a resource in me and in our clinic that helps her to achieve her health goals. I love connecting personally with patients and hope that our provider-patient bond is a two-way street where we can work together. I hope to create relationships with women where they feel like I am part of the community of people who support them to lead their best lives.”

About the Provider

Liz enjoys hearing women’s stories and being a resource for information and help when they need it most. She approaches caring for women as a team, working with each individual and family to form mutual trust and a personal relationship that often begins during pregnancy and continues as a woman’s needs and concerns change. One of the most rewarding aspects of supporting women for Liz is witnessing the strength they draw upon to go through pregnancy, labor, birth and the transformation to motherhood. She enjoys watching their stories unfold as they find new aspects of being and balance those with the old. 

Liz has a toddler, Danny, who is an endless source of joy and entertainment. When she’s not spending time with family, she is an avid knitter enjoys spending time outdoors hiking, backpacking and tending chickens and a vegetable garden.
