Elizabeth Heidger

PreProfessional & Praxis Program Coordinator, College of Arts & Sciences

Liz was born and raised in St. Louis, and as the infamous St. Louis question begs to answer, Liz went to Notre Dame high school. She attended Rockhurst University in Kansas City, MO, graduating with a major in psychology.

In the College of Arts & Sciences, she provides support for the Praxis Program in the College of Arts & Sciences, a complement to the student's major designed to offer opportunities to combine the foundation of a liberal arts education with marketable skills. She also supports pre-health Advisors and their students applying to medical school and dental school, managing the pre-health team’s programming needs, advising assignments, cover-letter writing endeavors, as well as technical support for students who are applying to different health professional programs.

Liz’s favorite thing about working at Washington University is working closely with the thoughtful minds who are always trying to better the student experience. Liz expresses her artistic side on the weekends while away from WashU. She owns her own LLC where she does airbrush makeup for weddings. In her time away from WashU, Liz most enjoys spending time laughing with her husband, daughter and golden retriever. When Liz is feeling tense, her favorite thing to do is to head to the hot yoga studio!
