Elizabeth grew up in Pennsylvania but has been a North Carolina resident since attending Davidson College. Her interest in medicine started in childhood, when she and her grandfather, a family physician, would play “office hours” with her stuffed animals. In high school, while shadowing her own family physician, Elizabeth developed an interest in preventative medicine with an emphasis on the doctor-patient relationship.
Elizabeth earned a Doctorate of Medicine at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, where she was recognized with the Pediatric Merit Award. She completed her residency at Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, NC.
After residency, she practiced primary care pediatrics in the Charlotte area, gaining valuable experience in both well and sick care. During that time, she became a mother of two children, which greatly informed how she wanted to practice medicine going forward; realizing that parenthood is a challenging and often scary endeavor, she recognizes the value of a partnership between parents and their pediatrician. Providing parents with a safe space where they can ask questions in an unhurried and caring environment became Elizabeth’s mission. She joined Living Water Pediatrics to get back to a trusting patient-doctor relationship.
Another sentinel event that changed Elizabeth’s perspective on the healthcare system was experiencing medical challenges personally; she began to investigate how to restore health by addressing the root causes of chronic illnesses. As a life-long learner, Elizabeth has pursued advanced training in functional medicine. She is inspired to use personalized lifestyle and holistic medicine to address chronic illnesses and to optimize wellness for her patients. Elizabeth believes that nurturing a connected patient-doctor partnership sets the stage for a healing environment.
Outside of work, Elizabeth devotes her time to her children, Michael and Mae, and enjoys watching them grow and change daily. She spends her free time connecting with family and friends. Elizabeth loves to read, cook, explore Charlotte’s greenways, and watch the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Elizabeth welcomes you to call and find out more about our practice, in hopes that you and your child will feel a part of the Living Water Pediatrics practice family.
