Liz hails from the South and lives for the water. She grew up in Virginia, spending summers on the Chesapeake Bay and the rest of the year in the nearest pool. Swimming and sailing from an early age inspired her love of racing, and today she's proud to be an elite swimmer. This past spring she was ranked top 100 in the world in her specialty, breaststroke.
This passion, along with her love of art, brought her to the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia where she earned her BFA in motion media design and MFA in graphic design. She also rocked the swim team, earning 13 All-American titles and setting school, BGM Conference, and NAIA records.
After college, Liz joined the Savannah Swim Team to pursue her dream of qualifying for the U.S. Olympic Team Trials. She accomplished her goal in one year, qualifying and competing in the 2012 Olympic Trials. She continues to represent SST and compete at an international level, and returned to the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials.
"As an artist and a swimmer, my two passions in life are being in the water and creating new designs. I feel so fortunate to bring both of those together, and to get to do it with the inspirational women of Jolyn."
