Elizabeth Persson

Elizabeth grew up in Calgary with her big family. Working downtown and living in Lake Bonivista she has always felt the high energy that Calgary brings.

Starting from a young age Elizabeth has always loved children and babies. She has nannied for many years, including families that have children with special needs, and even quadriplegic adults. She thrives best when serving others around her. So when choosing a career Elizabeth looked for something that would allow her to connect with people with a hands on aspect. She soon found that midwifery was the answer. Her love for babies, strong belief that the love and connection a child gets from their mother is like nothing else, and her natural inclination to do what is needed for individuals made becoming a midwife unquestionable. 

Over the last two years Elizabeth has had opotunites to participate in many outreach projects, in Calgary, Mexico, and Romania. Through a company called Global Aware she was able to build and rebuild community centres, and schools and homes for special needs. After these experiences Elizabeth soon found a love for connecting with people all over the world and with different backgrounds. She plans on one day taking her abilities as a midwife and helping mothers around the world give birth. 

Elizabeth loves the outdoors, competing in spartan races and playing basketball with her family. When shes not at UThrive you can most likely find her with her loving boyfriend, playing with her nieces and nephews, or out with friends.
