Elisabeth grew up in Raleigh, North Carolina and recently received her B.A. in Public Policy from UNC-CH. During her undergraduate career, Elisabeth concentrated in Health, Poverty, and Social Policy and completed a minor in Health and Society. She was also a member of the UNC chapter of the American Mock World Health Organization (AMWHO) as well as the coed service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, both of which helped push her to pursue a career in public policy.
Elisabeth’s policy interests primarily focus on the intersection of housing and education, especially in how they affect public health. She has conducted research on a range of related topics such as the education attainment gap and affordable housing crises in North Carolina as well as the effects of expanding Medicaid/Medicare in the state. Elisabeth hopes to one day help alleviate these crises and hold public office for the state of North Carolina.
