Elizabeth is one of three family members with albinism. She discovered NOAH online in 1995 and attended her first conference in 2010. Since then, Elizabeth has hosted local events, attended conferences, written for Albinism InSight, and chaired Resource Development as part of the Executive Committee.
Elizabeth holds an MA in Linguistics and a PhD in Intercultural Education. She has served in non-profit leadership since 1996, both in the US and overseas. Within her intercultural field, she teaches in university and seminary settings, writes for various publications, speaks at conferences and workshops, serves as ordained clergy in The Wesleyan Church, and leads an organization (Vibrancy) that helps multicultural endeavors and diverse teams to thrive.
She and her husband, Scott, have four sons and live in Clemson, SC. Jay, their youngest, is adopted from China and has albinism. Long family road trips and international travel are among her favorite activities–especially if they include singing, hiking, indoor rock-climbing, roller coasters, historical fiction, classical music, or really good coffee.
