By Greencastle Consulting

Today we are spending ‘5 Minutes With…’ Lizzie Scheivert and picking her brain about her favorite local restaurants. If you’re a foodie, this interview is for you!

Lizzie is an experienced consultant and hit the ground running since her first day at Greencastle. But her life outside of work is no less busy. As an Army Reservist, her free time is limited but she still manages to sneak in some time to unwind and relax with a few competitive rounds of Banana Grams! If you’ve never heard of Banana Grams, check it out here and let Lizzie know if you’re up to a game.

Keep reading to learn more about Lizzie and be sure to visit her restaurant recommendations the next time you’re in Malvern.

What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend?

My favorite way to spend a weekend typically starts with a fresh cup of coffee, and if the weather is lovely, I’ll be outdoors; otherwise, you can often find me either enjoying a few episodes of “The Office” or engaging in competitive Banana Grams matches with my family. 

What kind of trips did you take this summer?

My fiancé moved from CA to PA, so we both took a week and a half off to drive across the country! We made stops in Flagstaff, AZ; Amarillo TX; Little Rock AK; Nashville TN and Roanoke VA! I also completed my annual military training as an Army Reservist in Germany. My favorite portion of the training was the cultural day, where we explored Regensburg and experienced so much history. 

What’s next on your bucket list?

I don’t know if it’s next on my bucket list, but eventually, I’d love to sleep under the stars in Antarctica; it’s a unique and breathtaking adventure I can’t wait to experience.

What piece of career advice would you give to your younger self?

I would advise my younger self to prioritize continuous learning and networking, as these are essential for long-term career growth and opportunities. Additionally, don’t be afraid to take calculated risks and pursue passions, as they can lead to fulfilling and successful career paths.

What did you go to college for? And are you using your degree in your current job?

My undergraduate degree is in Political Science, and my graduate degree is in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution. I do not focus on politics specifically, but I took quite a few classes while completing both degrees that taught me how to think critically and then be able to portray those thoughts on paper and through action. 

Give us your top three local restaurants we need to check out!

  • The Flying Pig in Malvern; I just love the name and the decor. It’s a great local spot to grab a drink after work with friends!
  • The General Warren; the building itself has so much history and they have a great steak, it helps that I am within walking distance.
  • Lastly, I’d recommend Anthony’s Pizza & Italian Restaurant in Malvern. They have fantastic pasta and pizza! I used to work at a pizza shop in high school, so going there to pick up a pizza always brings back memories for me.
