Favorite Liz Quote from Alterity: “I’d rather be poor and live my life, than to be rich and live every day inside a box.”
Liz was born on the rough side of Phoenix, AZ to fifteen year old Debra Carlisle. Much of her paternal parentage is unknown at this time. One of the few things she does know about her father is that he was of Native American descent. Despite growing up poor to a drug-addicted mother, she’s defied the odds and is now weeks away from graduating nursing school. She’s employed as a CNA at Phoenix’s County General Hospital and considers each of her young patients as “her kids”.
Liz is strong, determined, and can be stubborn at times. She’s endured much but refuses to let the past ruin her future. She’s eclectic in her listening and loves all types of music, hanging out with her besties, Chaz and Sarah, and composing music.
