Get to know Eliza!

  Outside of the office, Eliza enjoys spending time with her family (human and animal). Gardening, paddle boarding, and exploring new places are some of her favorite things to do outside. Additionally, she enjoys baking and reading. She loves curling up with her latest book and snuggling with her fur babies – her dogs and cat – when it’s too cold to be outside.

She enjoys using play, art, and interactive activities to connect with clients, teach skills, and to support them while they share.
