She is a founding member of the MN Trauma Project and uses a Health at Every Size/Body Positive/social justice approach to weight in all of her work. Aware of her many privileges, Elizabeth aims to listen with humility and an open heart and mind and to continually educate herself in order to expand her ability to collaboratively facilitate and nurture healing in a diverse and inclusive practice.
