About Elizabeth Damrich
Elizabeth Damrich (“Liz”) was born in Athens, Alabama where her creativity was sparked at a young age as she and her sister listened to music, painted and tried on their mother’s clothes in their home studio.

She attended the University of Alabama and graduated with a degree in Marketing and Global Business with a minor in Art History. While in college, she gained public relations experience through internships and was offered a full-time job for a high-profile creative agency in New York City after graduation. There, she gained a true love of marketing and strategy sitting in the same room with revered fashion and beauty executives. While in New York, Liz married Michael Damrich from Mobile, whom she had met two days before graduating from the University of Alabama.
