Always a traveler at heart, Elizabeth began working with Dragons in 2007 where she led the first Andes and Amazon semester program in Bolivia and Peru. In 2009 Elizabeth moved to Boulder, CO and had the pleasure of working as Manager of the Dragons Administrative team. This position granted her the opportunity to clearly understand and celebrate the magic that goes into seeing a Dragons course through from inception to completion. Since 2013, she has collaborated with Princeton University to direct their 9-month, service-focused, gap year programs in in India, China, and Senegal, Indonesia and Bolivia.

Elizabeth has traveled to 30+ countries across the globe and has spent 5+ years living internationally. Her experiences outside of the US have deepened her love of our global community and the potential and compassion that is activated in cross-cultural environments.  In addition to traveling, Elizabeth loves knitting crooked scarves, sunny days full of adventure, community-inspired change, and big smiles.
