Originally from Naples, Elizabeth’s Rotary journey began as a volunteer with her father’s Rotary club and she later attended RYLA during high school. For the past seven years, Elizabeth has returned to RYLA to teach students how to become leaders in their own community. During college, Elizabeth immediately joined her university’s Rotaract Club and became a board member after one semester. Elizabeth continues to be an advocate for young people and Rotaractors wherever she goes. She participated in this previous year’s International Assembly inspiring District Governor-Elects from around the world to find champions in their district to elevate Rotaract.
Apart from her educational and Rotary endeavors, Elizabeth enjoys getting outside whenever she can. Elizabeth has a passion for hiking and nature photography, but she doesn’t mind spending the day indoors reading and relaxing. She recently has found an interest in indoor rock climbing where she continues to develop a trust in herself by scaling the walls at the gym and not falling. In the future, Elizabeth hopes to become a dual member to create lasting connections between Rotarians and Rotaractors.
