Hello! Thanks for stopping by!
I’m Elizabeth. I live in NYC with my cat named Phoebe. 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 now work full-time. In addition to my office work, I also work for a non-profit called Back to Humanity, that focuses on holistic rehabilitation for sex trafficking survivors, 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 training 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 took a bit of a hiatus (during which I wrote my masters thesis), but now I’m back full of thoughts and inspiration, and I finally have some time to put it on a page. I hope you find something here that speaks to you.
