About Liz

My family and I are proud West Duluth residents who believe in the spirit and resilience of our neighbors. My experience lies in engaging and mobilizing diverse groups of people, especially those often left out of the political process, to shape policy solutions at the state and local level. My career has included advocacy for access to healthcare, worker protections, and ending homelessness.


I’m a mother, wife, avid trail runner and believer in strong communities. Both my parents were pastors and I grew up living in and understanding the needs of both rural and urban communities. I’ve called Duluth home since graduating from the University of Minnesota Duluth 12 years ago. Shortly after, my husband and I purchased a house in the Denfeld neighborhood. This fall we welcomed our first child into our home.

I love Duluth and look forward to raising my daughter in this community. Being elected to the Minnesota House of Representatives is a way to put my love for Duluth into action, to serve my family, neighbors, and the people of Minnesota, and to help build a bright future for all of us.

I look forward to connecting with you. In the meantime, please check out my Facebook and Twitter for more frequent updates.
