This is a brother and sister team!  Elizabeth started flying in tandem paragliders 14 years ago, but just recently became a paraglider pilot herself.  Now she is addicted!  Liz is in charge of shipments and distribution with her home location in Bend, Oregon.  She has been running her own business for over a decade, and will bring that experience and knowledge, as well as her creative and inpirational spirit into the paragliding scene.  Liz is excited to fly her paraglider, and she is motivated to help distribute Gradient and Sup'Air products as well.
