Liz was born and raised in New Jersey. After graduating from Rutgers University with a B.S. in Animal Science and a specialization in pre-veterinary medicine and research, she worked in various roles in the animal field over the next 13 years. Inspired by her mom who was a nurse, Liz decided she wanted to switch careers from helping animals to helping people. Having been impacted by addiction in her personal life, she felt a deep calling to the recovery community. She started as a housing technician and is now very excited to follow her passion to help others and join the psychiatric department and behavioral health technicians at Bluecrest.
