LIZ FORD

Liz Ford is often described as fearless and full of heart - both on and off the pool table. Born in Newton, Massachusetts, she started playing pool while a student at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, where she earned a BA in Psychology.

Liz's talent, hard work and devotion to the game led her to become the Northwest Regional Tour Champion in 2000. She moved to New York with the goal of becoming a professional pool player and shortly thereafter became the number one ranked amateur player in the Northeast U.S. She earned her "Touring Professional" status with the WPBA (Women's Professional Billiards Association) in 2005.

Taking her game to the next level, Liz now competes regularly against top male players in the Northwest US. In her spare time she's a choir girl and writer, and loves watching old movies, including her favorite, "It's a Wonderful Life." "Hey, it's cheesy but it won a bunch of Oscars!"
