Liz is an experienced grant writer, researcher, and manager who has secured over $12 million in grant funds since 2017.

Her clients include schools, animal shelters, cultural and arts organizations, and human service organizations. Liz is a self-taught excel nerd who loves a good rubric. She is also an experienced presenter, leading dozens of professional development sessions related to grants and education.
