Professional Background

Liza is currently a Content Specialist in the Special Education Department providing training, coaching, and consultation to teachers, as well as direct support for students. Focus areas in her work include transition-age planning and supports, comprehensive sexual health education for individuals with disabilities, and the promotion of evidence-based practices. Prior to this position, Liza served as a special education teacher. 


Sibling Experience

Liza has a younger brother with autism that currently lives with his father. As a big sister, she has always known that she would help care for her brother in his adult life, but that realization became clearer after their mother passed and shortly after his father was diagnosed with Leukemia. She is interested in helping her brother develop greater independence in his life while establishing a closer relationship with him. Liza also has an older sister that she lives with and her eldest sister passed this year.


Other Interests

Liza plays flyball with her two fur babies. She loves to bake desserts to share with others. And when home alone, she has fun singing karaoke and dancing by herself.  


Words to Live by

·         A little at a time gets it done every time.

·         Everything “The Little Prince,” by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, has to offer.

·         And her mom used to always lift her up by singing “High Hopes” about that little ant and the rubber tree plant.
