Welcome to our newest family members!
Liz was born and raised in Littleton, Colorado. She enjoyed her summers at Skaneateles and the Finger Lakes have always held a special place in her heart. Liz first attended the Colorado College, where she studied Economics, specifically, the valuation of Natural Resources. She retains this appreciation of the outdoors and environmental preservation.
Both of Liz's parents have worked in healthcare all of their lives-a surgeon and an administrator. They encouraged Liz to look into Nursing as a career choice. She graduated Regis University in Denver in 2002 with her BSN and immediately went into in-patient oncology. Liz is a dedicated medical provider, driven by an intense desire to care for others.
She joined FMA in October of 2012. Liz, her husband Kyle, and their 14 month old son, Brewer all love living in the Ithaca community. Liz wants you to know that it is a privilege and a pleasure to participate in your healthcare and she is grateful for the opportunity!
