Later she fell in love with working dogs on sheep after attending a herding clinic in Greenfield, MA. Now she raises and competes with Border Collies in sheepdog trials. She is also a volunteer with New England Border Collie Rescue. In the remainder of her time, Elizabeth gardens, rides her bicycle and tends to her farm animals.
