Elizabeth joined the Jackson Spalding Athens office in 2006 after working as a loan officer for General Electric and in sales for a cable company. Over the years she has become indispensable on a number of fronts ranging from creative copywriting on our Delta Air Lines team, to community relations and branding work for several Athens-based clients. Internally, Elizabeth is a mentor and brings a wealth of knowledge to our Intranet, events and finance teams.
A National Merit Scholar, she has completed four years toward her triple major in German, Music Therapy and Violin Performance and plans to finish her ambitious course-load one day when life isn’t quite as busy.
Elizabeth is a classically trained violinist who played in the Spartanburg, S.C. Philharmonic Orchestra at the age of 16. She parlayed this talent into an orchestra seat with the University of Georgia Symphony Orchestra, where she played solo violin and viola and performed in several quartets. Today, she serves as a volunteer publicist for the Athens Symphony Orchestra and can still be seen playing guest appearances with bands around Athens.
Additionally, Elizabeth engages with the Athens Chamber of Commerce and serves on the board for the Athens Land Trust. She graduated from L.E.A.D. Athens in 2013. Her group’s project supported the Athens Area Village, part of the Athens Community Council on Aging, which provides a support system to maintain independence for seniors in their own homes.
At home, she’s den mother to Schubert the papillon and Kimyo, Anton and Edwin, her cats. Music is on continuous play in her life, along with more recent hobbies: weight training and Kyuki-Do, a South Korean marial art.
