"Dirty, sexy, and funny!"
Liz combines sexual innuendo with her confident spin on self-deprecating humor. She draws from her personal experience as a plus size model, her struggles with weight loss, and maintaining a positive body image. She openly discusses sex, being unmarried and childless at 40 years old, and is very candid about her alcoholism recovery.
