She has also had a high number of other successes over the course of her often lucrative acting career since 1991.

Early Life and Education: Growing up in New York City

She underwent high school education in her birthplace, in an unspecified educational institution, from where she matriculated in 1991. She then joined Lehman College in the Bronx, from where she graduated with an unspecified degree in 1995. Upon graduating, she went for a two-year acting education at William Esper Studios in New York City, where she studied under Maggie Flanigan.

Career: In pursuit of passion

Even though she obtained her acting degree in 1997, Elizabeth has been involved in acting since 1991, thanks to her role as a nurse in the short film entitled “Bedhead”. She made her film debut in 1994 as Consuela in the crime drama thriller by Boaz Yakin entitled “Fresh”, and in the same year she also made her TV series debut, portraying Erika in “Lifestories: Families in Crisis”.

Her career in this decade

One of her most recent is also her most popular film role, as Gabriela in 2017’s “Logan”.
