Elizabeth Meyers-Bass obtained her Master in Communication Studies here at Colorado State University, as well as a master’s certificate in women’s studies. Her passion is teaching. All of the real world experience she has obtained she makes a point of incorporating into the classroom so students are better equipped once they leave the university. She has lived in Fort Collins for the past twelve years, where she met her husband. Together, with their children, they love the outdoors. In particular, they enjoy boating, fly fishing, camping, swimming, rock climbing, and cycling. Beth looks forward to seeing you in future classes!
