Elizabeth Kelley (Lizzy) grew up in the wild woods of North Eastern Washington. She was raised by parents who fostered a love of nature, and appreciation for the small beauty in things around her. She is earning a degree in Outdoor Recreation from Eastern Washington University. Lizzy also enjoys working in the Arts and in the floral industry. She was drawn to work at Wilderness Inquiry because of it's mission. Getting to be in a position where she can help others grow and challenge themselves is often found in the great outdoors. Through every experience that Lizzy finds herself in, continuing to learn, grow and be humbled by others brings her great joy. Out on trail Lizzy finds her motivation through red bulls, reactions to her cheesy jokes, and the smell of making cowboy coffee in the morning. She feels fortunate to enjoy these beautiful places with the great people she works with, and comes to know along the way.
