Recognizing over 20 years of leadership to the George Washington Chapter including as its president.

Both professionally and with LAI she has been committed to exemplary public service.

“I am so honored to receive this award! I have had a broad career in land economics including about 21 years in public sector work, 20 years in private sector consulting work and 5 years teaching at graduate levels in affordable housing and real estate economics. I would appreciate it if the write up could reflect the breadth of my career.”

Please congratulate Elizabeth for her exceptional professional life and contributions to LAI.
