Elizabeth Shew
Elizabeth Shew is a freelance musical theatre performer, professional concert dancer, and current Senior Copywriter and Brand Manager at The Forem. Her greatest passion is storytelling, and she used quarantine to study screenwriting and try her hand at writing a few TV pilots. Life in the arts can feel like a big question mark at the best of times, and she has learned that "success" is often defined by the person, not by the gig; she is excited to discuss and unpack that in this podcast. We came away from this talk with so much inspiration and we hope you do to.  To connect with Liz you can follow her on Instagram: @e.r.shew , Twitter: @pointeshew and  LinkedIn Host: Broghanne Jessamine Produced by Elemental Women Productions LLC Elemental Women Productions is a women focused production company based in NYC.
