About the speaker
Elizabeth grew up on the Palouse – a region of SE Washington State and NW Idaho rich in wheat, barley, and squabbles over which town gets to call itself the Dry Pea & Lentil Capital of the World. After completing degrees in mathematics at Western Washington University, she moved to the UK where she has delighted in British accents and humour for 13 years. Her favourite number is -1. Elizabeth loves thunderstorms and schnauzers, and she abhors raisins.
