Elizabeth Doerr

Founder and Principal - Doerr&Co

Elizabeth Doerr is a writer, mother, and small business owner in Portland, Oregon. She writes about issues of social justice, parenting, travel, resiliency, and climate change. Her first book, co-written with Lynn Peterson, Roadways for People: Rethinking Transportation Planning and Engineering is out now, published by Island Press in December 2022.

She earned a Maryland/Delaware/DC Press Association award for her 2015 Baltimore City Paper story about street harassment, "Stop Calling Me 'Baby.’” about women’s experiences—including her own—with street harassment.

You can find her work in Parents.com, Bloomberg CityLab, Scalawag Magazine, Portland Monthly, and Baltimore City Paper among other publications.

Elizabeth is principal and founder of social impact communications and writing firm, Doerr&Co and co-founder of the community for writer-moms, Scribente Maternum. She also helps authors get their books out into the world by offering book writing and editing services.

I support "If You Knew Me" because it's so essential for us to hear women's stories. We often never think that our own story matters, but it always does and there will always be someone who can relate to or empathize with us. Sharing our stories offers a window into our unique way of manifesting resilience and "If You Knew Me" offers a convening point for support and community among women.
