periods. “I love art so I read a great deal of art history too,” she said.
Her favorite movies are MGM musicals from the ‘50s and ‘60s. “I have very
eclectic and varied movie and music tastes,” she said. “It would take too long to
list them all!”

One unique feature about Elizabeth: “I am a die-hard "Tar Heel" due to being a part of the fourth generation of UNC graduates in my family.”
