Elizabeth I. Elkington

Elizabeth believes that nothing is ever predictable, and the best way to adapt to a changing environment is to be overly prepared. Her ability to strategize for all eventual outcomes is one of her greatest strengths. As a child of divorce she understands the difficulties of restructuring a family, and aims to make the process as smooth of a transition as possible. It is most important to her that each family she works with is handled with great care and consideration. She believes that divorce is often one of the most stressful life events, and no one should have to go through it alone.
As a true, native Oregonian—and having lived in cities throughout the world—she’s proud to have the opportunity to raise her son here. She enjoys gardening, hiking, and yoga. She is also a classic car enthusiast and spends many weekends at car shows and other car related events. Her personal philosophy is inspired by a Mahatma Gandhi quote to "Be the change you want to see in the world”.
