A certified Assistive Technology Instructional Specialist (CATIS) and Certified Vision Rehabilitation Therapist (CVRT), Liz credits her initial interest in the blindness rehabilitation field to those  positive blindness rehabilitation professionals she had in her life early on who helped set her up for success in terms of being able to effectively navigate through the world despite having vision loss.

She received her  Masters in Blind Rehabilitation Teaching with a specialization in Assistive Technology from Northern Illinois University and currently works as a Blind Rehabilitation Specialist for the Department of Veterans Affairs.

When she is not working, Liz enjoys reading, traveling (New York City is a much favored destination) and being active. She enjoys running (with and without her Guiding Eyes Running guide dog) and is goalie for the Hartford Braillers-Connecticut’s blind ice hockey team.
