CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Another Cincinnati native competed on Jeopardy! Tuesday night.

Liz Kelly grew up on the west side of Cincinnati with her parents, Rich and Gail and her five siblings. 

Kelley attended McAuley High School before moving on to attend Xavier. After that, she earned a law degree from Vanderbilt.

Liz now lives in Chicago and is a staff and trial attorney for the IRS office in Chicago.

Her father tells FOX19 that appearing on Jeopardy! was something that Liz always wanted to do. She was picked for the show after taking an online test.

At the taping, Liz had to stand on a box because she wasn't quite tall enough for the podium.

While she didn't win it all, she definitely made the Queen City proud!

You can watch Jeopardy every weeknight at 6 and 7:30 p.m. on FOX19!
