Let’s start at the very beginning of our journey with Elizabeth from her homeland of Columbia, South America. When she arrived in Los Angeles, who were her mentors? How did she feel? What was their role in her education from high school, and college? Her success story could be a movie of the week on TV. She has a Bachelors and a Master’s Degree in Education. Therefore, why does she mentor others today?
