Elizabeth is originally from Florida in the United States where she studied, practiced and taught nursing at the university level for several years. Upon marrying she transplanted to Switzerland, where she was surrounded with the study of the German language and branched into studies of the English language. Funnily enough when thinking of careers, English was always her favorite subject but she realized she couldn't make a living from it so she studied nursing. :-) Needless to say she has always been a "book" person.
