Elizabeth Harper Kucinich is the British-born third (and current) wife of Dennis Kucinich. They were married on August 21, 2005. She is some 31 years his junior. She stands 6' tall and is a natural red head.
A native of North Ockendon, in 1996 she graduated from high school and took a plane to Agra, India where she had signed up to volunteer at one of Mother Teresa's homes for India's poorest children.
After earning her bachelor's and master's degrees at the University of Kent, she spent 16 months in a rural Tanzanian village, where she lived in a concrete-block, tin-roofed house, and worked as an advocate for regional development.
After she left Tanzania, she volunteered with a British Red Cross refugee unit; earned a certificate in peace studies from Coventry University; and got a job as a fund-raiser for a seafarer's charity in London.
Often, her volunteer work took her to the House of Lords. That was where she heard financial analyst Stephen Zarlenga speak about monetary reform. She was impressed and soon was hired to become Zarlenga's assistant at the Chicago-based American Monetary Institute. It was that work that took her and Zarlenga to Dennis' office.
She married Dennis Kucinich in 2005 in Congressman Kucinich's hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.
