Hi, I’m Eliza!

Outer Banks Expedition Leader

A lover of both the mountains and the sea, Eliza spends her school year in western North Carolina, and her summers back home on the coast of NC where she grew up. Eliza found a love for the outdoors early in life in the form of playing in the salt marshes, diving in the waves, and kayaking. Throughout college she has spent her summers conducting shorebird and sea turtle research, and most recently joined the GRP family as an OBX Expedition leader last summer. She is excited to be back for another season at GRP and on the Outer Banks!
