Noelle graduated from Fisher College in Boston, MA and also attended Suffolk University. Additionally, she is a graduate of the Dale Carnegie Training and a Landmark Worldwide graduate. Formerly of Boston/ Cape Cod, MA and Franklin, TN …she now resides in Fairfax, Vermont. After 18 years of being a working single mom she said, “what the hell” and got married in November of 2019 to a man with whom she had a 20 year history …She lives with her husband, her 19 year old son, Antonio and two large cats and one small cat named Merlin.
From the streets of Massachusetts to the valleys of Idaho, this single mother has sacrificed a lot to provide an amazing life for her son who is now a senior in college soon to live his life. She has a FT job, a PT job & two side hustles. She has overcome a lot and is reminded by her latest tattoo, (NOTW) that she is ‘Not of This World’ …only IN it. Every day she focuses on finding the joy in the sadness, the turmoil, the chaos that is in her heart or in the world. If she could write a biography, you would ask “how is she alive today after all that she’s been through? why is she so positive? and where does she get her tenacity?” Trial after trial; divorce, homelessness, suffering, loneliness, deaths, heartache, tragedy, misfortune……She has overcome! How?….BUT GOD. That’s it! Right there in a nutshell. BUT GOD. After every upset there has been triumph & blessing & miracle & victory… After every storm there has been a rainbow. Over & over & over again. She knows like she knows, she is here to love others and to be a beacon of light in the darkness. She is a God Girl.

When Liz is not reading, writing, or searching for new books to review, she can be found practicing yoga or enjoying time with friends and family — usually around a fireplace or a lake.
She is savoring the time that she still has with her daughters under her roof, yet she secretly dreams of being an empty nester who can travel more and not have to worry about other people borrowing her socks.
