About Elizabeth Cariaga

Hello there! Thank you for taking the time to find out a little bit more about me. My name is Liz Cariaga and I am excited to tell you what makes me... ME! I am one of 7 children ( only 2 girls ) that were raised on the East Coast. My childhood consisted of many normal things like sports, sibling arguments, getting into trouble, and trying to navigate through life with a few trips to the ER as possible!

I have a sister that is 10 years older than I, so for most of my life, I was the ONLY girl at home. This is one of the things that really shaped me into the person that I am today. Growing up with 5 brothers, or "The Wolves" as I like to call them, made life very interesting. Even with these interesing moments,  I would never change a single second. They taught me many invaluable lessons that I still pull from as an adult. They have helped me grow into the independent woman that I am today, although many of those lessons I 'learned' because I didn't listen to my brothers. Trial by fire!

I received my BSN degree from Wheeling Jesuit University and starting working in the hospital setting soon after. I have worked a majority of my career in the Maternal Child field. I am a Certified Maternal Newborn Nurse, a Newborn Resusitation Protocol Instructor, and certified in ACLS-OB and CPR.

I was married for the first time, right out of college. I fell into what I thought was going to be the start of the best years of my life. What I found was 7 years of chaos, stress, pain, and unmet expectations. At the time that I decided to end this union, I didn't even recognize the person that I had become. My life had completely fallen apart- medically, financially, spiritually, and emotionally. I had to stop the downward spiral. No matter what was promised, I had to end it. That was the hardest decision of my life.

And yet, ultimately the best.

As they always say, after time passes, you begin to find yourself and what you may have been meant to be. I remarried in 2010. Those initial "starter marriage" experiences have helped me pack valuable lessons into my arsenal this time around. Everyday I learn something new about myself and my husband. We are evolving and enjoying each twist.

 

In addition to working as a Nurse, I was a Slumber Parties Consultant from 2010 to 2014. I truly believe that you can learn something new about yourself, your relationship and you partner just by trying new things. I have taken what I know as a Nurse and fused it with all I have learned and continue to learn in the Sexual Wellness field. I have chosen to step away from the 'front lines' of the sexual wellness arena to get back to basics. Focus on me and my health and wellmess, just like I preach. Also, I've decided to focus on writing to you. Share my experiences and thoughts.
