Liz Wiig

North America & Latin America Instructor

B.A. Language Studies and Linguistics, University of California, Santa Cruz

If there is one thing Liz knew when she was growing up in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California, it was that she, like her father, had to travel.  It began with trips to visit family in the vibrant melting pot of Honolulu and the sunny surf culture of Southern California, then broadened to Italy, India, Guatemala, Senegal and beyond.  Liz discovered Dragons over a decade ago and has worked in many different capacities, from admissions and outreach work to teaching in the field.  As School and Partnership Programs Coordinator, Liz is enthusiastic about introducing Dragons to a wider audience and interacting with teachers and educators who are equally passionate about the value of global experiential education.

Liz is a perinatal and infant massage therapist, food enthusiast and educator, ardent outdoorswoman, and finds meaning in exploring the connections between her pursuits. Most recently, she has been focusing her travels on farm-to-table projects and education.  She lives in Boulder, Colorado with her son, spending most of her time in the kitchen, the mountains, or peering under rocks searching for lizards and bugs.
