With a BA in Art History from Stanford University, Elizabeth worked for several years in the Old Masters art world in New York City before she obtained an MS in Education from the State University of New York. As an elementary school teacher, she found her passion in mentoring girls at puberty and working with their families to better understand this important rite of passage.
For many years, she was the director of a non-profit dedicated to positive menstrual/menopausal education and awareness. It is her joy to help women and girls understand and appreciate the intelligence of the female body, and how it connects us to the cycles of the natural world.
The themes in The Well of Truth grew organically out of her two decades of experience as a mother, teacher, and menstrual advocate. The stories incorporate her love of art, travel, mythology, goddess traditions, trees, and the moon. Although she is a California native, she moved to the Nelson area in 2003. The Well of Truth is her first book.
