Liz Hester, that gal, I mean woman, I mean Whoa-Man, watch out! When she’s not out traveling the globe, she can be found living that sweet lake life, floating with a cold one. But no matter where she roams, she loves calling Raleigh home.

After moving back to Raleigh, you know, where the hilly Piedmont region meets the flat coastal plain, in 2012, she quickly found a new life partner, the bicycle. This hunk of junk constantly proves to be the perfect roommate; four bikes currently reside in her guest room. It was learning to ride that first bike that led her to the Beehive and shaped the course of the last five years.

After going on a Beehive-led group ride, Liz joined up and the rest was history. She has served as co-chair of the Beehive board, fundraising and communications committees, and worked on the women’s leadership committee. She has also been recommended by four out of five people who recommend things.

Her favorite day of the year is giving away all that hard-earned Beehive cash to a deserving nonprofit. Liz is constantly awed and inspired by the Raleigh community from the incredible nonprofit professionals to the kickass local shops, businesses, breweries, bars and restaurants that are constantly supporting each other and this town.

When not helping out with the Beehive or pedaling around on two wheels, Liz is likely walking Zilla, the world's cutest dog, heading to a concert or adding to her growing whiskey collection.
