'7 Little Johnstons' are ambitious people. Even though the world might think that they've been dealt a poor hand, this family of achondroplasic dwarves doesn't see their littleness as a disability. They definitely have their own challenges but there's no challenge too big that they cannot tackle. They do not rely on government assistance and nor do they treat this show, which is a hit by all means, as a means to better their finances. The family took up this show only to gain social acceptance. The parents, Amber and Trent, their eldest son Jonah as well as their third daughter Elizabeth have regular jobs. Elizabeth's work life was a topic of discussion on the recent episode (January 12) of the show.

Elizabeth decided to pursue a career that resonates with her caring personality. She set her mind to becoming a registered nurse and has been pursuing an education to do so. She attended the Technical College System in Georgia, not very far away from their home in Forsyth, according to Soap Dirt. After her first semester, she was qualified to become a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and she even got a job where she cared for patients under the supervision of a nurse. She was a frontline worker during the pandemic, working at Riverplace, an assisted living facility for seniors and even though it was a rewarding experience, she had to find a new job. The hours were too extensive and with Elizabeth required at the college full-time for the next semesters, it just wasn't going to be feasible for her. 


Elizabeth decided to look around and ended up with a new job. For those wondering where she works now, it's a place called CareConnect Convenient Care in Forsyth where she works as a Nurse's Assistant. During the episode, it was revealed that this is a much better option for Elizabeth as she has to show up at work just four days in a week for 10-hour shifts and gets the rest of the days off. 

Her parents Amber and Trent were relieved by the fact that Elizabeth's new job allows her the time to focus on her studies. They were a little skeptical in the beginning but Elizabeth ensured them that the counters are low, everything is within reach and that she'd be good. Join us to congratulate her on the new job in the comments below.
