Elizabeth Perkins was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. She started traveling in 2008 when she spent a semester studying in the Dominican Republic. Four years later, to the surprise of her loved ones, she packed up and moved to Managua to begin working as a member of the International Team of Witness for Peace (WFP), a grassroots organization committed to developing peace, justice, and sustainable economies in the Americas. As a first-time visitor to Central America, she faced a steep learning curve, but she has since mastered the public bus system and developed a soft spot for Nicaragua's crazy capital city. During her time with WFP, Elizabeth studied the ways in which U.S. policy impacts Nicaragua and Honduras over time and regularly contributed to the organization's blog and advocacy efforts. Along with the rest of the International Team, she also facilitated delegations from the United States who came to learn about the relationship between the two countries. When she's not traveling, you can find Elizabeth doing yoga, cooking, teaching her Nicaraguan dog commands in English, or reading a good book in a hammock.
