Liz Love

Liz Love hails from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, by way of Memphis, TN. After her parents' death, she was adopted by her grandfather and raised alongside five older sisters and two younger brothers. This midwestern girl with southern roots defied the odds and overcame adversity to arrive at her dream of being a college student.

While serving as the 80th Miss University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, she created Essence of a Woman, a peer to peer mentorship program to help young women matriculate academically, mentally, and spiritually while in school and life after graduation.  Liz earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and commissioned in the United States Army Reserves as a Medical Service Corp Officer. Ten years later, the program has transformed into a formidable organization with-stranding the tests of time.

Liz’s life experiences molded her into someone who saw the value of being resilient and emotionally intelligent. While obtaining her Masters in Mental Health Counseling, she became pregnant with a child and a vision that changed the trajectory of her life forever. Liz decided to turn her side hustle and passion for enriching others’ lives into a business. As the spouse of a soldier and someone who serves, she developed a lifestyle that could contain all of the gifts she was blessed with and never work a day in her life.
