Lizzy was born in Australia and moved to Whistler in her early 20's to experience what Whistler has to offer. Like most Australians, she struggled to leave. Falling in love with this place and lifestyle, it was not long after decided this was going to be the place she called home.
Lizzy's love and passion for shoes started when she was 16, working in a fashion shoe store in Australia. From there, she transferred to Footlocker and by the age of 18 she was managing their stores throughout Sydney. From there she was able to transfer to the Footlocker in Whistler, BC where she managed the store for 7 years. From this she gained the experience that was needed to open her own store and fulfill a gap, a shoe store with fashionable footwear.
Soles of Whistler opened February 2013 in the Westin Hotel.
Lizzy, also a nail technician, with well over 20 years experience was running a home based business on the side.
Over time as both businesses grew, Liz was struggling to be in two places at once. It made sense to find a new location where there could be both businesses under the same roof.
Due to COVID-19 the original Soles of Whistler store closed and with this came an opportunity to fulfill a massive dream of hers; to combine the two business into one location and offer the best of both worlds.
