Elizabeth "Liz" Finkle is married to Tom Finkle. Her three children are Allie Finkle, Mark Finkle, and Kevin Finkle. Liz bought an old falling down Victorian in the hopes that she could fix it up in her spare time from working as a college adviser at the univeristy. Liz is also the movie commentator on the local news show Good News! Which earns Allie some more popularity. Liz does not get payed for this job as her husband so often reminds her, that it is more like volunteer work than a job. She is also somewhat strict.
