As a member of Franciscan Mission Service's DC Service Corps, Elizabeth spent her year of service at Little Friends for Peace, a nonprofit organization which promotes interpersonal and inner peace to resolve conflicts in a nonviolent manner. Elizabeth has a passion for leadership and service and was one of the inaugural members of DC Service Corps. This opportunity allowed her to pair both of these passions for the good of others. Prior to her arrival at Franciscan Mission Service, she spent time with an AmeriCorps program in Michigan. Elizabeth graduated from Grand Valley State University with a double major in journalism and biomedical sciences and a minor in religious studies.
