the thinking man’s leading woman from the wilds of wisconsin...

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Liz and her family moved to the surrounding countryside when they purchased a boutique apple orchard. Liz grew up there surrounded by rolling hills, woods, and wetlands. She was inspired and captivated by the natural world around her and decided to become an entomologist.

However, around that same time, young Liz saw the movie musical “Annie” and decided that a life on the stage was also her destiny. She quickly discovered that the two careers didn’t mesh well, and turned her focus and passion solely toward the theatre. Liz’s determination and exceptional voice propelled her through Madison area theaters, Interlochen Arts Camp, and the University of Michigan’s Musical Theatre department where she earned her BFA.

While in New York, Liz’s three and a half octave range and soulful acting helped her to make a name for herself in regional houses across the country and in the New York theatre scene. Many new composers have used her unique versatility and skills to help develop their projects. 

In addition to her performance work, Liz teaches voice and acting and coaches song performance. She has also choreographed and served as musical director for children’s productions in Michigan and New York.

Her home base is now Madison once again. She continues to perform at home and around the country, in addition to helping run her family’s apple orchard.
