Elizabeth Goldsmith is the Founder and Executive Director of Thrive Center for Success. As a parent of a child with autism, Elizabeth understands the importance of having high-quality therapies and academics available for children of all ages with autism, preferably in one setting. She also realizes the financial burden on families associated with these therapies and education, and has sought to find better options.
Elizabeth earned her Bachelor of Science in Biology degree from Stephen F. Austin State University. After working in research for several years at Baylor College of Medicine, she returned to school to earn her Master of Science in Physician Assistant Studies from The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. Now, her focus is on finding ways to assist families and children with autism gain access to academics, therapies, recreational programs, and other supports necessary for these families to thrive.
Elizabeth resides in Magnolia, TX with her husband and two children.
