Elizabeth and her husband, Bruno, live in Mississauga, Ontario. She has held senior roles in global corporations in engineering management. A Civil Engineering graduate from the University of Waterloo (1981), Elizabeth holds two Masters: an EMBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business (2005) and a Masters of Theological Studies from the University of Toronto (2014). She is also a graduate of the Rotman School of Business Corporate Director Accreditation program and is passionate about lifelong learning.
This passion took her back to academics where she began as a mathematics college professor, retiring as the Associate Dean of Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology eleven years later. She has developed a wonderful appreciation of the diversity of cultures through a career that has taken her to many countries, including England, Germany, India, and China.
Elizabeth now spends her time as a writer and speaker. She is an active member in her parish and has led youth ministries, and facilitated parish discipleship and evangelization programs. She was awarded the President’s Award from the Ontario Society of Professional Engineers for her volunteer work with their Diversity and Inclusion committee.
Elizabeth is the author of two middle grade fiction books: 'The Case of the Robot Sabotage' and 'The Case of the Locker Room Thief'.
She has also written a series of faith-based books based on beloved books of the Bible. This middle-grade fantasy series includes: 'A Gate through the Old Elm Tree', 'Jesse’s Journey with Jonah', and 'Sam and Tobias Find Their Way'.
With a deep love for Scripture and a desire to bring the joy of God’s word to others, Elizabeth has written three books: 'Beauty and Reflections for Your Catholic Journey' for those just beginning their faith journey; 'Experience the Bible' written with a deep-rooted passion for evangelization; and 'Following the Ministry of Jesus' for those who have put Jesus at the center of their lives and look to the gospel writers to tell them about His life.
Elizabeth credits her joy of storytelling to her grandchildren. She enjoys family time, writing, travel, and needlework—and of course, her parish community.
