A University of California, Santa Barbara graduate, Elizabeth Leader Smith joined Whole Foods Market in 2007 with experience in marketing, public relations and backpacking throughout foreign lands. She has contributed to the company’s community relations, events and media relations efforts in Austin, Texas and currently supports the global communications team as a writer — all of which she’ll tell you may be the best jobs in the world. Her passion for sharing the Whole Foods Market story continues to be fed with each new ingredient, inspiring producer and delicious recipe she unearths. Elizabeth now lives in the United Kingdom where she explores picturesque villages, tries her best to say “aubergine” instead of “eggplant” and loves it when her daughter calls her “Mum.”
