Liza currently coaches mock trial at Seven Hills and recently taught labor law at the University of Cincinnati College of Law.

Outside of work, Liza enjoys birding and spending time in nature. If you’ll tolerate it, she’ll teach you how to identify trees by their bark and birds by their call. In the summer, she loves to work on her garden and ride her bike around the neighborhood. She lives in Columbia-Tusculum with her cat, Laika.
