A Pennsylvania native, Lizzie resides with her husband, Cliff, in Cumberland County. She has three children and five grandchildren. She describes herself as a daughter of “hobby farmers.” She shared, “My Gramm and parents felt it was important for me to learn skills to make it through the rough times. I grew up learning a litany of skills; gardening, cooking, sewing, hunting, and fishing. I once asked my Gramm why I didn’t have artistic talents like others in my family. She wrapped her arm around me and patted my hand, and said, “You have the “gift of gab.” I smile when I think of her reply, but that “gift of gab” has served me well with agriculture storytelling.
I look forward to representing PSCFO and working closely with the membership. “
