5 things about Liz

Q: Rise and shine: what are the first three things you do after waking up in the morning?

  1. Drink water!
  2. Give my family big hugs and let my dog out
  3. Check my phone to review my schedule for the day and star any new emails or to dos that just came in.

Q: Sip and savor: what's your go-to drink to fuel your busy day?

Most days are fueled by green tea and lots of water to stay hydrated but our office space offers nitro cold brew on tap – which often acts as my post lunch pick-me-up!

Q: #Obsessed: What's something you recently discovered that you can’t live without?

Wunderlist – I’ve been using it for a couple of years now for both home & work lists!

Q: Fill in the blank: You know you work in PR when...

You have a penchant for friendly follow ups in everything you do!

Q: My Two Cents: What piece of advice do you love to share?

Treat every interview, internship, volunteer position as a way to position your future, make a mark and start forming meaningful relationships. Even if you find out that it’s not the right fit for you, make the most of it and treat it with the utmost professionalism. The industry is small and your reputation is a competitive asset.

What are 5 things on your radar?

4. The New York Time’s coverage of the Royal Wedding – “Royal Wedding Time” from May 23.

Thanks Liz!
