Elizabeth grew up in Washington State, whose natural beauty inspired her love for the environment. Prior to working for Moms Clean Air Force, Elizabeth worked in social work and public health in Oregon, Washington, and Alaska. A mother of two daughters, Elizabeth became increasingly concerned about the impact of climate change after the birth of her first child.
As the DC field consultant for Moms Clean Air Force from 2017 to 2019, she fought the Trump administration’s dismantling of the Clean Power Plan, championed the passage of the Clean Energy DC Act, distributed Valentines to EPA workers returning to work after the longest government shutdown in US history, and tirelessly advocated for clean air and children’s health on Capitol Hill. As regional field manager, she remains a fixture on the Hill, even while managing field staff across the US.
