Career & Major Specialist
Liz has 10+ years of coaching youth and their parents in skill development, career exploration and navigating the education system from 6th grade to graduate school. Before working in higher education, Liz created, developed and managed a family engagement program to increase student success for a high school district.
In my recent role at Chapman University, I built relationships with recruiters and hiring managers, staying current on trends in the competitive workforce. I also coach students in career exploration and resume enhancement. The students that I have supported have gone on to work at companies such as Amazon, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and The Walt Disney Company.
I’m enthusiastic about helping individuals reach their goals. I focus on empowering and teaching students to make informed decisions that are grounded in research.
I spend my spare time reading all genres and listening to audiobooks. My husband and I enjoy hiking, visiting family in the Bay Area and exploring Southern California (our current home).

“I only spent about 20 minutes with Liz but got more direction than I had from spending hours researching.”
