Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a New York Times bestselling author and Emmy award-winning television co-host who recognizes how pivotal her early jobs were to forming her work ethic. Taking pride in her days as a cashier at a local pharmacy, waiting tables as often as she could, managing the register at a sporting goods store, and working as a summer camp counselor and babysitter early on, she credits those as her first assignments where she learned to work.
A Boston College graduate in 1999, Elisabeth played on the Big East Division I Championship Softball team while majoring in Studio Art and holding an apprenticeship at Reebok in its design department. After graduating, Elisabeth designed footwear for PUMA.
In 2002, she competed in the second season of Survivor, The Australian Outback, outlasting her way to the final four. For the next decade, she co-hosted the daytime talk show The View on ABC. In 2013, Elisabeth joined the morning news broadcast of Fox News channel’s FOX & Friends , where she served as a co-host for two years.
As a gluten-free celiac, Elisabeth has written The G-Free Diet and Deliciously G-Free, both about her journey cooking and living joyfully with Celiac disease. Her latest book Point of View is not about gluten, but about God’s lens, perspective, and the lessons she has learned the hard way.
Elisabeth has been a member of TeamRWB , a veterans nonprofit since it’s founding year, and currently sits on the advisory board of The Positivity Project. Elisabeth is wholeheartedly involved with Danita’s Children- a non profit providing food, hospital care and schooling for orphaned and impoverished children in Haiti. She loves working with her local Childrens’ Hospital.
Elisabeth is married to former NFL quarterback and current ESPN analyst, Tim Hasselbeck, and they are raising three children in Nashville, TN.
