Her favorite professor and mentor; Dr. Nancy Burton was instrumental in providing the foundation, the encouragement and the enthusiasm to realize that goal.

Elizabeth truly loved living in Saratoga where she adored (and was especially adored by) her friends, their parents, and her neighbors along with many of the business owners at her favorite places in town; specifically Uncommon Grounds, Esperantos, and D'Andreas. Elizabeth and Jillian have three pets - Labs Biff and Fab (who were trained by her to 'smile' on command) and a great big orange cat named Conrad. While in Cobleskill, she was fortunate to have some life-long family friends in her midst. The Gunzinger family has and continues to be a wonderful source of love and support. Elizabeth enjoyed tremendous care throughout her life from Drs Schnakenberg and Diaz, along with staff ; Diane, Joann, Shelby and Darwin of Community Care Family Medicine in Clifton Park.
