We had the good fortune of connecting with Elizabeth Schembre and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Elizabeth, can you share a quote or affirmation with us?
Quote: “We may not like the gift wrapping, but there is always a gift.” I believe that each opportunity that arrives at my door, does so for a purpose. Whether I succeed or not, it will teach me something which will prepare me for my next opportunity. I am a firm believer that everything, absolutely everything happens for a reason. Wrapped within any challenging situation lies the precious gift of a life lesson. When I stop to evaluate what is happening, I can usually decipher what the Universe is teaching me. It may not be obvious at times and I may struggle to comprehend what is unfolding but the search I have discovered is always worth it.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Throughout my life I have been very connected to the Angels, this connection has been a gift that has afforded me the opportunity to assist countless individuals in navigating their earth journey. Through teaching Meditation and Intuitive Development as well as conducting Angelic readings and mediumship sessions for over 15 years, I have shared the true messages of unconditional love and peace that can only come from the Divine. This gift has guided me as well in my own acting career. While performing stand up comedy in New York City, where I am originally from, I felt pulled to Los Angeles. Though there were numerous reasons not to come I knew I had to. I encountered countless different life learning challenges with that move but the pull was strong. As I overcame each obstacle I would see the immediate reward with new friendships and connections. The ultimate reward was meeting my husband who I met on stage here in Southern California. Though I no longer pursue stand up comedy, I still love helping others heal through laughter. As an actress, I get to discover and explore the comical in just about everything. Recently, I have finished writing a sitcom pilot for network television that is certainly funny but with a unique twist. I am excited about where this new direction will take me and know I will be shown the next step. As I move forward, I consider myself fortunate since I get to do what I love in the City Of Angels; help others connect and receive guidance from their Angels while fulfilling my passion for acting.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would show them the Los Angeles that reflects the Golden Age of Hollywood. Throughout the Hollywood Hills there are historic homes, we would take a day hike or two and see as many as we could including Errol Flynn’s house on Mulholland Drive. Before stopping to eat at Aroma Cafe in Studio City to take in the ambience and evening lights we would take a stroll through the Hollywood Forever Cemetery and visit a few celebrities. A must would be the Hollywood Walk Of Fame before driving down to Long Beach to stay overnight on the Queen Mary. What a fun way to round out the week with all the history the ship has to offer. Old Hollywood, ghost tours and World War II nostalgia all wrapped up in one very unique package.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have had the opportunity to work with many talented people. Kalinda Gray, a wonderful actress, Salem Witch trial historian and eccentric travel writer & photographer is a true joy and I am blessed to have her in my life. Her everlasting enthusiasm for performing is not only contagious but healing. We will be performing together, along with a fabulous cast, in ‘The Crucible’ which will be live at the Fullerton, Orange County Maverick Theatre in 2021. In addition, Stan Zimmerman, a well known network television sitcom writer has been a fabulous mentor and given me valuable guidance on writing my own sitcom pilot. I am forever grateful and again blessed that our paths have crossed.
