She is passionate about science and the natural world and language. Ms. Liza has received her assistant guide certification as well as certifications in trauma and resiliency, mindfulness for children, and Conscious Discipline among others - she is a lifelong learner and is deeply committed to her students and her ability to best serve them and their families.

She is the yearbook editor for Asheville Primary and enjoys finding ways to keep her creativity flowing.
