Since 2002, The Progeria Research Foundation has worked with Liza on virtually every major announcement of progress towards treating and curing children with this ultra-rare, fatal condition.  From the historic Progeria gene finding, to the first-ever treatment for Progeria, and many newsworthy advances in between, Liza has guided us through the PR aspects every step of the way.  Thanks in large part to Liza’s extraordinary skill and expertise, as well as her passionate dedication to the children, we have achieved extensive global recognition of Progeria and PRF’s work. She’s amazing!

Audrey Gordon
Executive Director, Progeria Research Foundation

Liza is diligent, talented, thoughtful, and very wise. My organization benefited from her creativity and skills to establish and mature our communications and events functions, with a focus on promoting research communications. Our scholars learned to translate and promote their research with Liza’s guidance. She was the driving force for many of the initiatives that changed the trajectory of the organization. Everything she touches turns out for the better. I deeply enjoyed working with Liza and regularly benefitted from her advice.

Vicky Wilkins
Dean, School of Public Affairs at American University

Liza is a very organized and gifted communications strategist. Her deep relationships in the Washington D.C. area and particularly in the healthcare field, where she has many connections, are very useful for managing a Washington communications strategy. I always appreciate her insights and ideas on how to get the message across effectively, and her ability to make direct connections with decision makers.
