Originally from Fort Wright, Kentucky, Elizabeth Averbeck grew up playing in the outdoors. Her love of backpacking and hiking evolved from overnights at summer camp, day hikes with her family and many evenings around campfires. Prior to graduating from Denison University, Elizabeth knew she wanted to work in the outdoor industry and now, putting her passion to work, she brings her zest and energy to SNEWS.
Before joining the SNEWS team, Elizabeth spent six years in sales and marketing with Pearson, a global educational services provider in New York City. Elizabeth is based in Boulder, CO and when she’s not checking out gear trends on www.snewsnet.com you can find her trail running, road biking, hiking, eating peanut butter, drinking tea and trying any outdoor sport she can find.
