Beyond the Law
Beyond the Law
Growing up in rural Bedford County, Virginia, Liz developed a love of the outdoors. In college, she was an avid rock climber, but now she gets her thrills in the courtroom and in the political arena. While she still loves to get outside when she can, Liz found a love for both politics and community volunteering when she moved to Richmond in 2012. While studying at University of Richmond Law, Liz founded a bi-partisan political discussion group, and she can often be found asking anyone and everyone if they’re registered to vote at their current address.
Liz’s ideal weekends are those spent volunteering and enjoying the city’s many restaurants and breweries with her husband, Brandon. Liz and Brandon love traveling to new places and visiting their old favorites, including Smith Mountain Lake and the Abaco Islands in the Bahamas.
