In both her scholarly and professional work, Lizzie often finds herself bridging different worlds. As a chaplain, her work offers a healing space that spans the secular and spiritual. When teaching and working with groups, she seeks those moments when individuals’ inner-meaning meets collective experience. And in her writing, she speaks in a voice that she hopes can be heard within and beyond scholarly circles.
Advisors: Ann Ulanov and David Carr
