Liz joined KUOW in January 2020 as an Online Editor/Producer. Prior to that, Liz covered education for Crosscut/KCTS 9. She is also an alumna of YES! Magazine, WLWT-TV, and The Cincinnati Herald. Liz currently sits on the board of the Seattle Association of Black Journalists as Senior Vice President.
