Elizabeth Hurst, founder of Elizabeth’s Wish, began her career in the design and architecture field in New York City with a BA in Communications before relocating to Edinburgh, Scotland, where she became a partner in a conservation architecture firm. During her 15 years in Edinburgh, she married Ross Blair, they had two children and proceeded to drag them all over the Scottish Highlands on windy hikes and wet camping trips.
A strong proponent of lifelong learning, her next step was to undertake a Postgraduate Masters Certification in Counseling Approaches at Edinburgh University. This led to a career shift into the world of therapy and counseling.
When the family decided to repatriate to America in 2004, Elizabeth worked in mental health in Philadelphia before establishing Newtown Family Center, a private counseling practice in Newtown, Pennsylvania. Clearly having found her calling, Elizabeth has furthered her research in mental health from Edinburgh University with a Masters of Science program in Psychological Approaches.
Her most recent life challenge came when she was diagnosed with Stage 3B Ovarian Cancer in 2019, despite two years describing her symptoms which were consistently attributed to gender, age and menopausal status. Her current cancer journey has spurred a fierce commitment to educating people on early symptom detection and to changing the medical diagnostic procedure protocol for these symptoms. “After you meet people facing what you are,” Elizabeth said, “you figure out how to make a difference for everyone else in the future”.
