Liz grew up in the high desert community of Hesperia, CA. Liz was led to the Lord by a friend when she was 18 the summer after she graduated high school. She moved in with her aunt to attend El Camino College. Liz grew spiritually thanks to her aunt's close relationship to the Lord. The Lord led Liz to transfer to Azusa Pacific University where she completed her degree in Liberal Studies and began graduate school. Liz also met Steve at APU, and they were married in 1995.

Liz taught Kindergarten at Calvary Christian School in Santa Ana for two years. In 1999 Steve and Liz welcomed Samuel, their first son, into their lives. Liz then became a stay at home mom for the next 7 years. During those years they welcomed Anne and Nick into the family.

In 2006 Liz felt led to return to the classroom as a Pre-K teacher at Yucaipa Christian School. In 2009 Liz began teaching at Barton House Playschool where she has  been teaching Pre-K for the past 6 years. Liz is thrilled to return to Kindergarten where she started her career as a teacher years ago. Liz is excited to be able to share her love and faith of her Savior with her students and hopes to help each one develop a close, personal relationship with the Lord. It is also her desire as a teacher to help her students grow to love learning and be successful in school.

Liz enjoys running, biking, and crafting. She also loves cheering on her husband and kids in all of their academic, musical, and athletic endeavors.
