Prior to moving to Nevada, Elizabeth studied Early Childhood Education and Development and took this knowledge into the classroom. She used her educational skills to develop and implement a two to three year old educational program at Whiz Kids Preschool, a Class A preschool in Lafayette Louisiana.
In 1986 she returned to school to follow her desire to work in the legal field. She obtained an Associate’s Degree in Paralegal Studies. After an internship in a local law office, Elizabeth was hired at the Physical Therapy Clinic of Carencro as a paralegal and was promoted to the Office Administrator in 1992. During the time in this position she was responsible for developing a billing system for the clinic and the day to day scheduling and operation of the clinic.
In 1999 she relocated to Nevada after accepting a position to work for a national franchise, the RotoRooter Franchisee Association, assisting Mary Lau, the president of the association. Some of the many responsibilities were to assist in organizing an annual convention and the day to day administrative duties of the association.
In 2000, RAN offered her an opportunity to work with Mary Lau at the legislative level advocating for the association and its members. This position has involved various administrative responsibilities along with the advocacy function for the association.
