Liz is a lover of cities and country in equal measure and a believer in the value of good policy.

Liz found her way to planning after a brief career in teaching. Her early planning experience was widespread, working across the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors on social research, community engagement, statutory and strategic planning, and infrastructure assessment projects. Today, she leverages that breadth alongside her depth of understanding of demographic trends and community needs to tackle complex challenges.

At SGS, Liz leads project teams in turning technical analysis into evidence-based advice that delivers considered solutions that benefit all. She recognises the expertise that clients and stakeholders bring to each project and takes a collaborative approach to projects.

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

Outside of work, you can find Liz kicking around with her soccer team or enjoying (short) bike rides between food and drink stops.
