A true explorer in the space, Elizabeth spends a great deal of her spare time in research mode: discovering emerging trends, practitioners, products and brands in wellness. She lives in Los Angeles with her boyfriend and mini poodle, Midas, and loves a good Real Housewives binge all in the name of self care.
