Liz is a planner committed to delivering sustainable communities that nurture and empower those who reside within them.

Liz found her way to planning after a career in teaching that gave her a deep understanding of how it takes a village to raise a child. She brings to consulting this experience in collaboration and helps shape cities and regions (the child) to ensure they are equipped to improve social outcomes for people.

Her belief that people have a fundamental right to affordable and accessible housing within places that are well designed and contain good infrastructure is always at the forefront of her work.

In 2020, Liz was awarded Victorian Young Planner of the Year, PIA Victoria Awards for Planning Excellence, recognising her contribution to the industry and her balanced qualities in advocacy and planning outcomes.

Liz sees the value and importance of community and strives to bring inclusive outcomes that better the lives of residents.

Outside of work, you can find Liz exploring Melbourne’s rooftop bars or underneath a wave that’s just knocked her over.
