Elizabeth Raymond is Charlottesville born and raised. After attending the University of Virginia for her Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters in Education, Elizabeth then ventured into the entrepreneur world with her mom and sister, as one of the Co-Founders of NoBull Burger, which produces and wholesales veggieburgers throughout the country. When she is not immersed in the many hats of running a business, she very much enjoys enhancing her life with traveling, spending time with loved ones, nature, food, music, yoga and learning (bonus points if it’s all at the same time). She loves opportunities to serve her community and help enrich the lives of others through health and wellness.
