Personal

Elizabeth began rowing as a walk-on at Bates College, where she majored in Geology. In 2012, Sonshine joined the Green Racing Project in Craftsbury, Vt., where she trained full-time for three years and became a somewhat proficient cross-country skier until moving to Boston to train with Riverside’s high performance group in 2015. After the Olympic Trials, she moved to Saratoga and joined the ARION team in the summer of 2016. She enjoys baking bread for her teammates, reading and drinking coffee.
