She conducted her clinical training at the University Hospital in Salt Lake City and remained within the University system working at both the University Hospital in the emergency department and inpatient medical-psychiatric unit, as well as the University Neuropsychiatric Institute. Elizabeth moved to Montana in 2015 with her husband to pursue outpatient work with a local agency before returning to the familiarity of the inpatient unit at Pathways Treatment Center. Elizabeth’s clinical interests lie specifically in working with patients recovering from grief and trauma.

In her free time, Elizabeth enjoys Montana’s great outdoors with her husband and their adventure cat.
