Elizabeth Walsh

A designer living and working in New York City, Elizabeth decided to take the plunge towards a more natural, plant-based lifestyle a few years ago during a trip to India that left her feeling completely inspired. She has fun with her plant-based journey not only through food, but also through experimenting with different homemade recipes for skincare and beauty products. Some say her bathroom looks more like a kitchen than a bathroom! While she has fun, she also takes natural-living seriously — as she works towards becoming a licensed architect, she is interested in sustain able, alternative ways of designing and building.
