Liz received her Bachelor of Science degree in Civil Engineering at the University of Maine and her Master of Science degree in Historic Preservation at the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to joining the firm in 2021, Liz was an Associate with an architecture and engineering firm and a Field Engineer with a large general contractor.Since joining our firm in July 2021, Liz has helped produce: repair drawings for the historic North Entrance of the Conway Public Library, Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit applications for adaptive reuse of historic properties, including the Wedgewood House, an Avesta Housing project in Lewiston, Maine; construction documents and construction administration for a low-visibility sprinkler design at two Acadia National Park gatehouses and Storm Beach Cottage, respectively; many condition assessment reports, including for: Pejepscot History Center and Skolfield-Whittier House, in Brunswick, and the Percy MacKaye House in Plainfield, New Hampshire; and plans for renovations to private homes throughout Maine..

Liz has lived in seven different states, growing up largely in Ann Arbor, Michigan – but she has deep roots in Maine and stayed at her camp on Pleasant River Lake every summer as a child. On her last count she was one of 13 relatives to attend the University of Maine.
In her free time Liz enjoys spending time with her family scattered throughout the country, exploring with her adopted pup, Gemma, working on artistic projects, like painting and scrapbooking, completing DIY home improvement projects on her Kennebunk condo, and traveling – both near and far. Liz has volunteered for Rebuilding Together in both Philadelphia and Washington, D.C., organizing “build weekends” to renovate/make health and safety upgrades in old rowhomes of low-income neighborhoods to keep families in their familial homes.
