A Louisville, Mississippi native, Elizabeth landed in Jackson some 30 years ago after graduating from “The W” (Mississippi State College for Women back then). As a talented musician, passionate glass artist, and restaurant entrepreneur, being a partner in a staffing firm was not in her dreams.
She had been the business manager of Pearl River Glass Studio for ten years when she met Jane Sanders. Together they grew Legal Resources throughout the 1990s into the mid 2000s, when it became PSG. All the while Elizabeth continued to develop her glass art.
Today Elizabeth juggles being PSG’s co-owner along with her duties as an owner of her glass art business – Blues Candy. Elizabeth is a regionally recogized artist and recent President of the Crastmans’s Guild of Mississippi. In 2010, Elizabeth was named one of the Top 50 Leading Business Women in Mississippi by the Mississippi Business Journal.
Over the years, Elizabeth was the energy behind the scenes. She handled all the finances, managed payroll, and kept the office full of fun and the Team engaged in many community arts projects. Elizabeth is also a bit of a techie! She is looked to for review of technology services or products being considered. With the addition of Cindy Rocray as Controller, Elizabeth has been “liberated” from some of her duties to commit time to BluesCandy. She remains a vital member of the PSG Team, though. “E”, as she is called, works closely with Cindy and Jane on strategic planning, setting company goals, and business development and with various community arts programs.
Elizabeth says, “It has always been important to keep an eye on the company taken as a whole and its progress. A clear definition of what is right for PSG directly translates to what works for our clients and candidates.”
