Committed to making the world a better place through purposeful design, Liz’s work is a testament to the ways in which design can be used as a powerful communication tool.
A veritable New Englander, Liz was born off the coast of Maine, grew up in New Hampshire, and attended the University of Massachusetts. At UMass, her passions for design, art, community, and sustainability culminated in a B.S. in Environmental Design and a Minor in Art History. Breaking with her New England roots, she headed to the South, earning a M.F.A. in Industrial Design at Savannah College of Art and Design.
Prior to joining Impact, Liz was focused on exploring the intersection of empathy and design. For her thesis, Empathy for the Invisible, she drew on her social-sciences background and advanced design skills to develop a toolkit that helps people better empathize with the invisible symptoms of mental illness.
In her spare time, Liz enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with her husband and their cat, Hamilton.
