After receiving her M.A. in Marine Affairs at the University of Virginia, Liz was hired as a Knauss Sea Grant Fellow and Fishery Manager for the Office of Sustainable Fisheries at NOAA. During her time as a Fellow, Liz coordinated two teams of high-level scientists and managers, organized public review of the Highly Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan, developed and implemented a constituent advisory program for the commercial and recreational fishing sectors, and prepared a report to Congress on the management of the Atlantic longline fishery. Liz later worked in the Marine Conservation Program at the Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS), where she was promoted from Program Officer to Director during her tenure. In her tenure with the Marine Program at WCS headquarters in New York, Liz led strategic planning, project and budget management, fundraising, and program initiation for an international marine field program active in 20 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and North America. Subsequently, as Director of Program Development at WCS, Liz represented WCS’s Global Conservation Programs to partners and donors in Washington, D.C., working on a team to develop partnerships, identify alignment between WCS field programs and donor priorities, and refine strategic plans and conceptual models for major WCS land- and seascape programs.
