Elisabeth Mistretta joined Midwest CareCenter's Marketing Communications team in June, after nearly 15 years as a staff writer and editor for both the Daily Herald Newspaper and Sun-Time Media's Pioneer Press. Elisabeth was part of teams that won the 2012 and 2010 Lisagor Award for covering breaking news.
In 2003, Elisabeth's work was published in the book "That Takes Ovaries: Bold Women and their Brazen Acts." After the book inspired a nonprofit organization that helps abused women throughout the world, she hosted open mic events with professional authors throughout Chicago that raised funds for the cause.
