Liz has been helping out in the family business since she was tall enough to see over the counter. She started out dipping wetsuits after the river trips, and now she takes care of ordering all the fun t-shirts and other cool stuff we sell at our retail locations. Liz lives in Ohiopyle, and enjoys spending her time hanging out with her black lab, Keida.
