 "Liz is an energetic, strong sprited, dedicated leader that is a pleasure to work with. Liz and I worked together leading the transformational initiative for EDS' Infrastructure services line. Liz is exceptional at breaking down the barriers that prevent an organization from adopting and implementing change. Liz has the ability to taking seemingly unrelated tasks, and pull them together to deliver results. She is a lot of fun to work with - and I would work with, for or beside her any day."

Vicki Laurie

Liz is a stellar example of a leader that gets quickly to the heart of an issue - capable of connecting the diverse points of many business factors - and refining them into a tangible action. She saves money. She creates momentum. She tenaciously works on a problem until it whimpers into submission. Liz works just as hard on her communication and people skills, as she does on her problem-solving abilities. She is a trained business mentor and is well-known for her ability to relate to different groups and pull them together into a common goal. I would work with Liz again in a heartbeat.” February 16, 2009
