Dr. Liz Winters is a main character in the Frasier-based fan fiction spin-off Crane Life.
Liz is a bubbly and sweet-natured young psychiatrist who joins the practice towards the end of Season 3 to fill the position left by Dr. Will Casey. Liz quickly proves herself to be a highly skilled psychiatrist, and is often asked for advice by her colleagues. In Season 6, Liz is made temporary manager of the practice following Joyce Kauffman's dismissal, but is swiftly replaced by Andrew Sharp. The experience allows Liz to see she is capable of many things, and she departs the practice on friendly terms at the end of the season, despite an attempt by Joyce to ruin her career. Liz returns for a brief story arc in Season 10. After getting fired by her seedy boss, Liz is hired by Edith Beaumont, but resigns a few episodes later when she grows tired of the faceless corporation. Running into old friend Dr. Daniel Bird during a business trip to New York City, they agree to join together and open their own practice.
