Lizzi was born with one hand.  She says ” I spent a lot of my childhood hiding my arm and wanting to just blend in. Swimming has taught me to take pride my body for how CAPABLE is it.”  She states that One of the most important lessons that she want to pass down to the next generation in swimming is to embrace what makes you different, it’s your superpower that no one else can replicate!

Lizzi has embraced hard work and dedication inside and out of the pool! On top of her accolades in the water, she has Devry University certificates in Web Design and Web Development!

She says “There is no universal formula for success and that’s awesome because our swimming gets to be a way to create your own adventure.” Her motto for swimmers is “find a way.”  Through hard work, create thinking, and a willingness to adapt we can find a way to be better swimmers!
