As a student and a professional, Elizabeth is ready and willing to dive into any and everything. From her diverse involvement on campus to her career opportunities and service on the Young Alumni Council, she lives by the philosophy of saying YES. “You’ll never know your limits until you push past your comfort zone,” Elizabeth said. “Truly invest in yourself, dream big, and say yes.”
She owes much of this attitude toward life to UGA. Her experiences in the classroom and abroad taught her how to ask questions, take initiative, and push her boundaries. “Comfort zones are for rookies,” she said, reflecting on the lessons learned in college. This translates over into her professional career, as the challenge of long days, important deadlines, and big decisions can be daunting.
The reward of working for an organization like Children’s, though, keeps Elizabeth motivated day-to-day. “We’re not all built to be doctors. We can use the ways we’ve learned to help in any shape or form,” she said. She is grateful that she can use the gifts and knowledge she has to help kids and make a meaningful impact on the community.
