"Elizabeth is a creative, resourceful writer who informs and entertains with her well-researched insights."
- Keith Huang, The Wall Street Journal
"Elizabeth has an intuitive sense of public relations, but what makes her highly competent is her ability to articulate clear messages and connect with the appropriate audiences. Elizabeth is the ultimate connection-builder."
- Sylvie Sadarnac-Studney, owner, Kedrika Communications
"Elizabeth is the type of person who delivers; she also happens to be a true polyglot communicator, seemingly as comfortable conceptually as she is digesting information. She's quick too. Quick witted and slightly manic which if you need help on a project is SUCH a blessing."
-Nancy Beckett, Columbia College and Second City instructor, writing coach, and client

- Nate Sloan, publisher and editor, The Apiary Network
"Elizabeth is a wonderful editor to work for. She pours a tremendous amount of energy into the Bastion, and maintains an excellent resource for the Chicago comedy community.

She is a delight to work with!"
