As a Project Manager at Redstone, Liza worked on economic development, conservation, and climate projects across various settings – from Latin America to New York City. She helped design a comprehensive, multi-donor plan to increase funding and improve management for Peru’s protected areas, and helped design and implement the New York City Food Assistance Collaborative. The collaborative is a coalition of major players working to end hunger in New York City, bringing together City Harvest, United Way of New York City, the New York City Human Resources Administration, and the New York State Department of Health Hunger Prevention and Nutrition Assistance Program, in a unified effort to direct emergency food resources equitably and efficiently to residents in need.
While at Yale, Liza studied ethics, politics, and economics with a focus on Latin America. She received various fellowships to research the effects of foreign investment on agriculture in Peru and studied abroad in Chile. After graduating, Liza served as a Research Fellow at the National University of Colombia, where she studied land restitution as part of the country’s post-conflict agenda.
