Public Health Advisor
Elizabeth earned a Masters in Health Sciences from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health with a concentration in reproductive, perinatal, and women’s health. Her career has been focused on addressing health disparities for underserved populations, specifically the risk factors and health issues of low-income and transient populations. Liz’s experience working for the Women and Children’s Health Policy Center, Baltimore City Healthy Start, and the University of Maryland School of Medicine fostered an understanding of the complex relationship between health outcomes, housing, education, addiction, social networks, and food security especially in the context of an urban environment. Most recently she worked as a Supplemental Instructor for the Community College of Baltimore County, teaching Introduction to Biology, Anatomy and Physiology I & II, and Microbiology. Liz aids Goman + York in conducting needs assessments, analyzing demographic data, and making policy recommendations through the public health lens.
Relevant volunteer work includes interning at Planned Parenthood (Philadelphia), acting as a member of the Health Services Advisory Committee of the Southeast Early Head Start (Baltimore), and currently Liz serves on the Board of Directors for the Mystic River Historical Society.
Liz is a recent transplant from Baltimore, MD to Mystic, CT where she enjoys restoring her historic home. She loves hiking and spending time on the water with her wife, two young children, and dogs and is thrilled to be back in New England.
