Liz started her career in education immediately after graduating from high school, first as a sailing instructor, then as program director of Kids Set Sail, part of the National Maritime Heritage Foundation. After seeing the immense power of experiential education, Liz knew she had found her calling. She spent several years working in out-of-school time programming, followed by seven years working with three PR/ communications agencies in the education sector, leading projects with TIME For Kids, Tyton Partners, the U.S. Department of Education, The Nature Conservancy, Educational Testing Service (ETS), the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the National Education Association Foundation, DC Public Schools, New Tech Network, National Academy Foundation, and the National Center on Time and Learning. After a year as Director of Marketing and Communications for a nonprofit in DC, Liz went out on her own as a marketing, communications and PR consultant focused on education clients. Her expertise includes strategic planning and messaging, partnership and network development, media and influencer relations, knowledge management, event design, production and facilitation, and content creation and dissemination.
