About Me

I’m Lizzie – a clinical social worker with over four years working in healthcare. My primary experience lies in integrative approaches to well-being, motivation and self-care. I’ve worked in both hospitals and outpatient clinics. In addition to my day-job, I am also passionate about the activity focused methods for self-care and chronicle these experiences in D.I.Y., cooking and lifestyle.

On Mind Over Hobby I’ll be sharing my love of sharing new skills, providing helpful tips, and giving you fresh perspectives on how to find your own version of calm. Feeling happy, mindful and in a state where you feel in tune with the world around you are among my inspiration for creating this blog. 

I live in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina with my  husband, Jimmy. I graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a Masters in Social Work and from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Social Work. I have over 4000 hours of experience in individual and family psychotherapy, assessment, and treatment in both the public and private sector.
