Liz Outside the Office



Liz was born and raised in Kansas but have lived in 13 different cities.

Liz accidentally happened into the world of academia but loves working with students. She enjoys learning about success students have had after graduation. It is very gratifying to see former students that are happy and living their best life.

Liz is a music buff and has seen close to 100 concerts, everything ranging from Foo Fighters to Yanni. She is also a fan of true crime novels and a huge fan of all things Law & Order. If she had not started working in the university world, she would likely be a detective or have something to do with law enforcement.
