Elizabeth firmly believes that the family unit can function successfully when all members are healthy, whole and working together. After working with the military, Elizabeth held a position with a Fortune 500 healthcare company. However, corporate life was not suited for her creativity. That experience gave her a new perspective on workplace and personal life balance. After seeing co-workers and herself experience burn-out and dissatisfaction, she decided that she would work to assist women to find and maintain their life and work balance. After many years, research and a few positions along the way Wisdom & Insights and her niche were developed.
