She grew up in a musical family, but the only one who was a thespian. She worked very hard to get an acting scholarship to Western Michigan University, where she completed her B.F.A. She also was invited on a full ride to complete her masters degree in acting in Connecticut but instead followed her heart and moved to Chicago, where she had an agent waiting for her. She originated the role on stage of "Betty Page" in the play, "Betty Page Uncensored" at the Playground theater in Chicago. Elisabeth was seen in the film, "Into Temptation" with Jeremy Sisto (Law&Order / Suburbia) and Kristen Chenoweth ( Wicked/Glee), playing the role of "Maria." She says "It was an amazing experience for me. I knew I could cry night after night in character on stage, but this was the first time I ever had to do it on camera. The director had me crying all day...a lot of my stuff got cut, but at least I know I can do it (cry on cue) in character when acting in a film setting. They are very different." Elisabeth says her dream is to be in a period piece. She has a minor in English and British Literature. "I absolutely live for historical movies and plays."
