Liz currently resides in the Phoenix area, Arizona, and has lived in many places. Even in her youth, she understood that education has the power to better lives and loves to learn. She holds a BA in International Relations, a BA and a MA in German/Holocaust Studies, as well as a Ph.D. in International Conflict Analysis. She is a passionate advocate for human rights, more specifically minority, refugee, women, and children’s rights, and has presented, researched, and published much on the topic of long-term (re-)integration.
She comes to TSOS with extensive professional experience in operations and policy planning at the U.N. level, in curriculum and course development in higher education, as well as for grassroots. As a refugee herself, Liz knows that trials are part of the journey and that life is precious. True to her roots, Liz is always ready for a good laugh, loves engaging young minds in meaningful discussions, spending time with her family, and embracing new cultures, people, and food.
