Lizzie grew up in Lake Forest, IL and recently graduated from Xavier University with a major in Environmental Science. Her passion and love for the outdoors began as a camper at Red Pine Camp in the northwoods of Wisconsin. She has been on staff there for the past six summers as a cabin counselor and a canoeing/backpacking instructor. After a couple different environmental service experiences, she has always wanted to be a part of a conservation crew. And as much as she loves the Midwest, she is thrilled to have this opportunity to live and work in the desert.
