About

That's So Retrograde

Raised in Metro Detroit and a graduate of Michigan State University, Elizabeth spent her 20s building an impressive career in fashion and PR: conceptualizing and running Rachel Zoe’s The Zoe Report, founding online consignment business, Closet Rich, while styling, creative directing and consulting for a multitude of brands. With a passion for turning ideas into things, it was her evolving interests that led her to merge podcasting and wellness 7 years ago, with listeners instantly connecting with her discerning tastes and specific brand of candid relatability. 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.

AB FAB OF THE NEW AGE.

ELIZABETH

If That’s So Retrograde had a momager, it would be Elizabeth. A creative spirit with a passion for turning ideas into things, this Metro-Detroit native has evolved from her humble beginnings as a Public Relations intern, turned fashion person (hired by Rachel Zoe at 24 to conceptualize and launch The Zoe Report), turned entrepreneur (founder of online consignment concept, Closet Rich), to her current role as podcast creator and host.

Grounded in her Taurean nature, with an unending drive to educate the masses on all things wellness, she makes her mark spreading the hot sauce on self care with her own brand of candid relatability. In her spare time, when not exploring her way around Los Angeles and the Internet, her favorite grounding practice is a Real Housewives binge.
