Liz is a grounding sort of character. She is the director at CASTLE, a pre-K and kindergarten program for now, where she and her staff get to influence the very youngest and most impressionable of our children.
My mom’s family was mostly German, and French, and maybe Irish. I think it’s my dad’s grandparents who were from Denmark.

It exemplifies the need for solid leadership throughout our entire culture, whether you’re the president or the principal of an elementary school, or an owner of a big company. We need to remember why we chose to lead in the first place, and to create transparency. There is a need for those in charge to be reflective, and authentic, and responsible for their own behavior. That has such an impact on the larger whole.
I just moved back here to California from about 10 years in Nevada, right during the recent fires. The ash was still falling. Right when we opened CASTLE, we were challenged with the smoke and with the pandemic at the same time. We didn’t know if we should be inside or outside.
