Elizabeth has been fascinated by other cultures and languages since childhood. Her first international travel experience was as a Mobility International USA disability rights exchange delegate to Costa Rica.
She returned to Costa Rica for a semester while pursuing a B.S. in Spanish at Minnesota State University-Mankato. Also, she was the first wheelchair user from her university to study abroad.
From Costa Rica to Tanzania
After all that, she then pursued a M.A. in International Leadership at the University of St. Thomas and studied abroad in Tanzania. Since then a strong commitment to promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities in international travel and education was on her priority list. You can read her blog, The Global Access Files to communicate this message. Elizabeth is excited to join the AccessibleTravel.Online team and currently lives in Minnesota.
