Liz has been writing since she was age 9 (more about that here). Suffice it to say, she’s passionate about putting words on the page.
Her other passion is the people side of business.
After earning a degree in English from Whitman College, teaching in Japan, and working in international trade, Liz realized that the people side of the business was where she belonged. She enrolled a nine-month Training Specialist Certificate Program at the University of Washington. Upon completion Liz was hired by Starbucks as a human resources (HR) coordinator for the retail division.
Liz held a variety of roles under the HR umbrella at Starbucks. During her 11 years of tenure, she was responsible for designing and developing training programs about management skills, leadership practices, staffing, compliance, and creating a great work environment. Liz launched her copywriting business in 2011 because she had a desire to blend her skills as a writer and as an HR professional.
Today Liz enjoys working with clients by providing:
- A valuable, insider’s view of HR buyers
- Personal, first-hand experience with HR practices and systems
- Clear, engaging content about the people side of business
