Interviewing her grandparents for a middle school project ignited a passionate interest in local history and genealogy in Elizabeth. She learned the joy of gathering information and solving puzzles, becoming increasingly fascinated by how events and individual decisions shape communities and the people in them. This interest led her to public policy, where she uses her research and problem‐​solving skills to help ensure that Michigan is a place where people can have a high quality of life and meet future challenges.

As a consultant at PSC, Elizabeth supports projects by uncovering and analyzing valuable information, adapting communications to suit the intended audience, and assisting team members in achieving project goals. She greatly enjoys writing and contributing to PSC’s reputation of integrity and reliability.

Prior to joining PSC, Elizabeth analyzed the fiscal implications of proposed legislation and helped facilitate state budget negotiations at the Michigan Senate Fiscal Agency. She previously worked as a policy research associate for a marketing and consulting firm and completed internships in local government in East Lansing and Detroit.
