Liz started skiing on vacation trips with her family. With a family very keen on skiing, it was inevitable that Liz would make a career out of the sport. However, in 1997 she had a skiing accident which resulted in her loosing her left leg below the knee. This did not stop her. She started ski racing whilst at university in the UK. It was there that she fell in love with the thrill of competition.
After studying, and working a ski season in France she decided that she would give ski racing her best endeavour. It was then that Liz discovered the NSCD. Liz never had a problem with her disability, but it was the NSCD that really helped her accept her amputation and she has a lot to thank the organisation for providing this outstanding program and the support that it provides.
Liz enjoys numerous other sports. A keen tennis player and runner, she also takes pleasure in cycling, hiking, horse riding, to name but a few. She has a passion for extreme adrenalin activities, including sky diving and bungy jumping! Liz is currently living in Winter Park, Colorado and hopes to settle here in the near future.
