Elizabeth honed her love of all things food, retail, and business growing up in a family owned-and-operated bakery in the deep south. She developed a knack of selling cookies and bread to anyone who walked in the door, and learned the value of strategic marketing early on.
“I believe in the brand – the story – the reason people keep coming back, time and time again. The connection you make every time someone buys your product or service, and why. For me, it’s all about the relationship.”
Elizabeth has extensive experience in retail and online sales, entrepreneurship, business development and operations, production management, training, strategic marketing, advertising and communications.
