Elizabeth is Los Angeles born and Renton raised. She graduated from Renton High School in 2015 and went on to earn her B.A. in psychology with a minor in sociology at Scripps College. She is now pursuing her MAED in School Counseling at Seattle University. Elizabeth was moved to return to Summer Search as an alumni board member out of her gratitude for all that the Summer Search Seattle team has done to help cultivate her into the leader she is today. Elizabeth credits her experience as a Summer Searcher for fostering her passion and commitment to supporting low income, first-generation students of color like herself. It is in becoming a secondary school counselor that she hopes she will be able to continue facilitating the growth and success of many more students to come.
In her spare time, Elizabeth can be found enjoying a good video game with family and friends, binging true crime podcasts, practicing her Japanese, catching up on This Is Us, and cuddling with her Pomeranian Eskimo Snowball.
