“E,” as some of us used to call her, lives in New Philadelphia with her husband Paul McEwan (UC Law ’90) and her four children, Will (22), Rob (17), Rick (15), and Kate (13).
Since 1997, she’s been the Court Administrator of the Court of Common Pleas for Tuscarawras County. As she explains it:
I manage the court so that the judges can be judges. That includes everything from case management, budgeting, human resources, stakeholder relations, community relations, security, tours, to overseeing our probation department. I helped develop the job description, and it helps that I was a practicing attorney and therefore a court customer for about eight years prior to being hired. One of my goals has been to be connected state-wide and I am the President of the Ohio Association for Court Administration, I occasionally teach for the Ohio Judicial College, and have served as member and Vice-Chair of the Rules of Superintendence Commission for the Supreme Court of Ohio.
Between her day job, her extensive volunteer work (for the local Bar Association, the Breastfeeding Coalition, the New Philadelphia Lions Club, the OSU Alumni Club, and what she describes as “a few others”), and being the mom for four enthusiastic student athletes, Elizabeth has never lacked for things to do.
