Elizma was born and raised in South Africa and had a passion for medicine from an early age. As a senior in High School, she was blessed with a tennis scholarship to play and study in America. Elizma received her Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and continued to complete her Master’s degree in Physician Assistant Studies. Elizma has practiced in Pediatrics for the past 20 years and recently finished her Doctor of Medical Science degree. Elizma and her family have made Gainesville their home since 2006 – Go Gators! She and her husband Brook have two children, Ben, 11 and Kate, 7. Family time is a top priority and she loves experiencing the world through her children’s eyes. Hobbies include decorating, gardening, reading and learning Hebrew. The most important in her life, however, is her faith in Jesus. The Lord’s call upon her life, the love for children and the joy of experiencing unique little personalities, inspires her to serve children, as if they were her own, and as unto the Lord.
