Elizabeth has been an animal lover and involved in animal issues her whole life. She spent much of her youth life rescuing stray cats and dogs from her local neighbourhood, yet it wasn't until August 2006 when she questioned the difference between those we eat and those we pat and decided to give up animal products.
She was inspired to begin ATAAC with long time school friend Andrew in early 2007 after they failed to find an animal rights group that suited exactly what the youth of Australia needed; somewhere young people could talk with other young people and feel comfortable to ask questions. ATAAC was born with the aim of educating the youth of Australia about the injustices animals all over the world face on a daily basis, with an emphasis on what the youth can do to help end the suffering.
In May 2008 Elizabeth won Girlfriend magazines 'Girlfriend of the Year' for her work for animals and ATAAC. She was a finalist for the Pride of Australia Medal Young Aussie award and received the Young Citizen of the Year Award in Hobson's Bay in 2010 and 2011. In 2011 she travelled to India with Andrew and iCandy Productions to present a feature length documentary on animal welfare in India. She also appeared in a documentary on factory farming cruelty with Daz Cordeux of Kisschasy for Animals Australia. She has a degree in journalism from RMIT University in Melbourne and now works full time as a journalist with a Melbourne magazine.
