Hello! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Elizabeth. I live in NYC with my cat (Phoebe), my dog (Wendy), and my partner (Tucker). Though I’ve moved around a lot in the last few years, I was raised in Georgia and consider Atlanta to be my hometown.
I got my bachelors in creative writing in 2013 and then moved to Lebanon where I lived for 6 months, followed by Kosovo where I lived for nearly two years. I’ve also spent significant time in England, Jordan, Spain, Ghana and Thailand. I moved to New York City in 2016 for graduate school and got my masters in International Educational Development from Columbia University where I wrote my thesis on the impact creative movement has on the social and emotional wellbeing of adolescent refugee girls. I work for two non-profits (Back to Humanity, and LiveYourDream.org), and I work as an Emergency Department advocate through Mt. Sinai’s Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Program. Last but definitely not least, I am a doula trained through DONA International. For more information on my work as a doula, you can go here.
I’m a traveler, writer, dweller of coffee shops and mountain tops, feminist, yogi, former ballerina, occasional musician and avid thrifter. I’ve been to 27 countries, and though my traveling has slowed recently, I hope to go to 27 more.
I’ve had this blog since 2009 and have used it for random thoughts, poems, stories, travel posts, lists, and other musings. I hope you find something here that speaks to you.
