After entering the workforce over 20 years ago, she spent a majority of her career working as a technical consultant, developing and delivering a variety of training courses for clients. Many years ago, Liz became acutely aware of the dangers the Internet posed to children like her own. While parents recognize these dangers, they are uncomfortable and even intimidated by the depth and breadth of the technology their children use. This led Liz to create Cyber Safety Consulting with the goal of educating parents, children, and school educators on the safe, savvy, and ethical use of the digital world. Liz is also the founder of the CASE program, Cyber Awareness & Safety Education, which is implemented in middle schools nationwide. Liz has been seen on WGN News, Fox Morning Show, NBC News and has contributed to many national news outlets and articles.
