Lizzy Hodcroft was born in Scotland, spent her youth in Texas and more recently relocated to North East England.
Despite her relatively short time in Newcastle she has quickly made her mark. Earlier this year she was named to the Journal’s 35 under 35 list of rising stars to watch.
As Founder of The Sweet Beet she was invited to appear on the BBC’s Dragons Den. More recently her passion for the advocacy of mental health led her to co-found Myndr, a mental fitness startup company. Lizzy also sits on the Toon Council for The Sick Childrens Trust and volunteers as a mentor for The Girls Network.
