After a few years working in the traditional, out-patient orthopedic setting, Liz ventured out on her own. She started making house calls as a personal trainer and wound up purchasing a massage table to save her own spine because she often ended up performing manual work on the floor. Now, clients come to the Body Temple, where Liz is able to meet clients’ needs outside the traditional realm of healthcare delivery. She serves in a wellness model and sees the whole person and body instead of just one body part at a time.
Outside of the Body Temple, Liz enjoys hiking, road cycling, and regularly practices yoga. Her interests also include percussion/drumming, camping, green living, and taking care of our selves and the planet through higher consciousness and non-violence.
