Elizabeth has lived in Colorado most of her life and has always appreciated the beautiful and clean water that the mountains provide. Her belief that everyone should have access to clean, potable water drove her to the water and wastewater program at the University of Colorado Boulder. Elizabeth is currently conducting research on the sustainability of small drinking water systems through the EPA DeRisk project and she plans to continue working in the drinking water field after graduating.
