Scorpio with a heart of gold; the Falcon is in the building. Creative and expressive, she performed for the better part of a decade as a stand up comic. She's an actress and writer who brings her curiosity towards life and love of over-sharing and laughing about it to That's So Retrograde for a weekly dose of realness and levity. 

If That’s So Retrograde had a momager, it would be Elizabeth. A creative spirit with a passion for turning ideas into things, this Metro-Detroit native has evolved from her humble beginnings as a Public Relations intern, turned fashion person (hired by Rachel Zoe at 24 to conceptualize and launch The Zoe Report), turned entrepreneur (founder of online consignment concept, Closet Rich), to her current role as podcast creator and host.

Grounded in her Taurean nature, with an unending drive to educate the masses on all things wellness, she makes her mark spreading the hot goss on self care with her own brand of candid relatability. In her spare time, when not exploring her way around Los Angeles and the Internet, her favorite grounding practice is a Real Housewives binge.

Elizabeth Kott and Stephanie Simbari have been coined “the Ab Fab of the new age” with good reason. Effortlessly merging pop culture and wellness, the ladies of That’s So Retrograde seek out their most authentic selves, one mistake — or mindful awakening — at a time, while graciously bringing their listeners along for the ride.
