  • Meet Elizabeth

    Nonprofit Leader. Small Business Creator. Public Servant.

    Born in Alexandria to two Naval officers, Elizabeth is dedicated to serving her community. She helps lead Together We Bake, a nonprofit job training and personal development program for women in need. 

     
    Elizabeth understands the pressures of being a small business owner. She is the founder of Fruitcycle, a business fighting the tragic paradox that, while one in six Americans experience food-insecurity on a daily basis, 40% of our food is thrown into landfills.
     
    Before launching Fruitcycle, Elizabeth worked for the National Governors Association, where she served as governors' liaison to Congress, federal agencies, and the White House on issues related to transportation, economic development, and health.
     
    She was appointed by the Alexandria City Council to serve on the Community Criminal Justice Board and was selected as one of Alexandria’s 40 under 40 in 2017.
     
    Elizabeth also serves on the boards of Agenda:Alexandria, the Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food and Agriculture, and the Alexandria Regional Council for the United Way. She is a member of the Junior Friends of the Campagna Center, and the Alexandria Kiwanis Club. She is a graduate of Emerge Virginia and the Alexandria City Academy.
     
    Elizabeth is a former Fulbright Fellow, graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Cornell University, and received a Master's from the University of London.
     
    Elizabeth lives in the Taylor Run section of Alexandria with her husband Stephen, their dog Shelby, and their cat Julep.
