I am Elizabeth Minton, an associate professor in marketing at the University of Wyoming. I was born and raised in Alaska where I grew up fishing for my meals and spending my afternoons and evenings skiing, hiking, and enjoying the great outdoors that Alaska offers. Wyoming is now my second outdoor home where I enjoy rock climbing, skate skiing, and mountaineering.
In addition to my academic credentials, I am a Wilderness First Responder, Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Christian Counselor, and Certified Professional Life Coach. Some of my non-academic accomplishments include Guinness World Record holder for fastest time to set up a 2-person tent, triple under jump rope grand master, speed walking champion, top dog handler, and marathon finisher.

Solomon Onyx Minton
My purpose in life is to make a difference in this world in the small things I can do for others on a daily basis - whether it be one conversation with a student, a helpful insight for a business, leaving a hiking trail cleaner than I found it, or walking alongside someone in a tough time in their life. I am inspired to this by my faith and in loving memory of my son, Solomon, who passed away at just three weeks old in January 2021. I have been blessed with more than I deserve, and I greatly desire to pass that grace and kindness along to others, just as I know my son would also do if he were still here on earth with me.
