Liz, a native of Castle Shannon, is a recent graduate from the University of Pittsburgh where she studied European History and Mediterranean Art and Archaeology.

She is particularly interested in genealogy and has traced her own lineage back to the 14th century.
In her free time, Liz loves to cheer on our Pittsburgh sports teams, read , visit historical sites and events, and fall down historical rabbit holes in the wee hours of the morning. She is also a huge fan of board games and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle connoisseur. Liz can usually be found watching Starz’s Outlander or Discovery’s Expedition Unknown and/or swooning over Netflix’s Bridgerton.
