Blogger Elizabeth of Hard Alee in talbot’s braided-trim jacket

Me: My name is Elizabeth, and I am a Jersey Shore girl currently residing in Connecticut. I was born and raised on the Jersey Shore; lived in Connecticut for about six and half years after graduating from UConn with a Bachelor’s degree in International Relations; and moved to Boston at the end of 2014 after finishing my MBA in Finance and International Business, which I also received from UConn. After spending about two and half years in Boston, and having two children, we decided to move back to Connecticut, so that we could be closer to a majority of our family. Additionally, my husband decided to go back to a family business after spending 8 years in the corporate insurance world.

Outside of blogging, I am a mother to Madeline (3) and John (1), wife to Eric (7 years), and V.P. in the financial services industry.

Blog: Hard Alee is a space where I can break away from my traditional corporate career and have fun with my other passions, like fashion, beauty, travel, decorating, and party planning. But also, because my work and career are such a huge part of who I am and what I love, I will be including some office/corporate style and business posts, as well as other timely topics that I find interesting, educational, motivational, and/or uplifting.

My goal is to inspire other women, especially busy career-minded mothers, in every facet of their life.

Thank you for visiting, and I hope you follow along!
