Liz is deeply passionate about empowering youth through introspection of their identity, goals, and interests. She believes that every young person deserves a mentor to lean on, trust, and laugh with to get through these sometimes challenging, but important years.

Liz is a Philly native and new to NYC! She graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in Urban Studies and Sociology. In school she focused on youth and education in cities. Her passion for empowering youth grew from her work at an education non profit that encouraged students to graduate with a dedicated post-secondary plan. There, her passion grew for working with students and helping them along the way. She is excited to continue working with students as a mentor!

In her free time, she loves cooking and baking for her friends, exploring new parks, and biking through the city. She cares for her cat, Lady and her many many plants in Brooklyn!
