    Elizabeth "Liz" H.

    Liz earned bachelor's and master's degrees in nursing from Emory University and is board certified by the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners. Pursuing both a master’s degree and nurse practitioner licensure provided an opportunity for her to blend the compassionate care of nursing with the diagnosis and treatment of health conditions.

Prior to joining St. Luke's, Liz enjoyed working alongside her father until his retirement.
