(she/her)Washington Improv Theater
Elizabeth prefers not to experience FOMO.
Elizabeth began improvising in a very boring and predictable way—by following through on a beer-encouraged brag announced at an office happy hour.
Elizabeth has been making her family laugh since 1991 and now enjoys the new challenge of making strangers laugh. While her theater roots technically go back to summers enrolled in Round House Theater youth programs, she was shy enough to last-minute avoid any talking or singing roles (does that still count?). While enrolled in the WIT curriculum, Elizabeth was empowered to take a stand-up class at the DC Improv and you can now find her performing in venues around the Washington D.C. area and in Baltimore.
Elizabeth is originally from Kensington, Maryland, but took the Red line into the city one day and the delays have kept her here. She is a self-proclaimed blogger, Twitter expert, and Netflix binge-watch champion. Her weakness is a well-proportioned mimosa with the correct orange juice-to-champagne ratio.

Elizabeth began teaching improv in a very boring and predictable way--it was following through on a beer-encouraged ask to TA for a teacher at an improviser's birthday party.
Elizabeth has been teaching since 2017, before Level 3 was “Game”. She loves teaching students of all levels, and her favorite memory is when she gave an explanation to an exercise and the entire class in synchronicity went “Ahhhhhhh…” in a moment of epiphany.
“Elizabeth was great at teaching us the basics of character work and inspiring a fun and supportive learning environment.”
“She is great at developing class rapport with each other… and at highlighting each individual’s strengths as he/she fit within the group.”
“Elizabeth managed a good balance between enjoyment and learning. It was one of my most productive, helpful, and fun classes I’ve taken in DC.”
