Elizabeth is native to Virginia and a graduate of Virginia Tech, where she received her B.A. in Political Science with a concentration in national security.
On campus, Elizabeth experienced the bias that many of her professors had, and the liberal culture surrounding the campus. Her freshman year, she became involved with a conservative activism group on campus, and became heavily involved in voicing conservative ideas. During her time in the group, as well as the Chairwoman of the group, she helped bring Ben Shapiro to campus, as well as Luce speakers Kate Obenshain and Nonie Darwish, and exposed various instances of bias on campus like a sign telling students to check their privilege and an almost canceled lecture for a conservative journalist.
Prior to joining the staff, Elizabeth was a Summer 2016 Fellow for the Institute.
