Fun Facts:

  • Liz is a serious coffee lover. She not only drinks it non-stop, she worked at Starbucks in college. Nevertheless, she falls asleep the minute her head hits the pillow.
  • The coffee situation may possibly be related to the fact that Liz has three young children and a police officer husband who works nights.
  • In her rare moments to relax alone, Liz likes to read biographies and eat any type of ice cream – unless it’s mint chocolate chip.
