Elizabeth Jorgensen

Tourism PEI Vacation Planner

Hartsville

Elizabeth was born and raised on Prince Edward Island. One side of her family has lived on the Island for over 200 years; the other arrived in the 1960s. She majored in tourism management and loves to travel, yet there's no place she'd rather call home than PEI. An avid dancer, Elizabeth is active in Scottish and English country dancing and especially enjoys the way it preserves Island heritage.

Where do you live in PEI?
Hartsville.

What does an average day look like for you?
Not even close to average, and that's exactly what I love about my job. Each visitor and question is unique, and I'm always learning new things. 

What's your favourite thing about life in PEI?
The sense of community; the indescribable feeling of belonging that I get when I walk along a PEI beach; and the fact that no matter where I go in this world, I always have this place to come home to.

What is something people wouldn't know if they're not from the island?
The colours of the Prince Edward Island Provincial Tartan are reddish-brown for the soil; yellow for the sunshine; green for the grass and trees; and white for the caps on the waves.

What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about?
Faith, family, friends, camping, canoeing, music, dancing and PEI history and culture. Oh, and I'm a huge Jane Austen fan.
