Elizabeth grew up on an orchard in a rural town near Wenatchee; her family worked in agriculture. Determined, she was excited to pursue a degree in journalism when her mother became ill and then sadly passed away while Elizabeth was in college. Devastated, Elizabeth returned to school because she knew her mother would be proud of her. That’s when she found WWIN. “WWIN has been near and dear to my heart,” Elizabeth said. “It became almost part of my healing process.” Elizabeth returned to finish school, and today, she is a producer at KEPR where she has been of service to her community by producing stories about COVID during the pandemic. We know her mother would be very proud of her and her career.
