Meet Your Tour Manager: Elizabeth Cramer

 

From adventures below sea level in Death Valley to summiting the rooftop of Africa on Kilimanjaro, Elizabeth has spent the majority of her life documenting world travel through television, writing and photography.

Humble beginnings on a Midwestern farm cultivated a deep love for nature, animals and the arts.  Raised in a hard-working family, Elizabeth started teaching herself how to play the piano at a young age, eventually winning national competitions and using her talents to perform and teach.  Her career in music helped support a love for travel and her creativity was exactly what helped her to break into the media industry.

She received her Bachelors of Music from the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee in 2004 and a Masters of Psychology in 2008.

Elizabeth works as a tour director for Fox World Travel and is honored to host groups of guests around the world.  In her own words, “The only thing better than seeing the world yourself, is watching someone else see it for the very first time.”

Though she loves to showcase international travel, Elizabeth is just as passionate about her own backyard in the United States.  She can regularly be seen hosting on the Milwaukee PBS show “Outdoor Wisconsin” and is proud to call the Midwest home.

In addition, her travel writing can be found in various publications throughout Wisconsin.

When she’s not traveling or filming, Elizabeth can be found on her farm with her husband, five goats, two ponies, two dogs and seven cats.
