Liz was born in Brooklyn, New York. Her character and personality reflect the confidence, heart and drive her beloved borough is known for. She graduated from St. John’s University and immediately embarked on a prolific career in broadcast covering the stock market, global economies, faith-based news and world, international and local stories. Liz’s coverage of the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland and Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia affirmed her reputation as a dynamic, versatile journalist. The television news veteran secured in-depth interviews with ranking local politicians including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Senator Charles Rangel, New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli, former Mayor David Dinkins and Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.

As one of the country’s most respected Catholic television anchors, Liz has traveled to Rome’s Vatican City to provide extensive coverage of Pope Francis and his predecessor Pope Emeritus Benedict the XVI, leaders of the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics. Local church leaders praise her sharp, probing and accurate reporting on critical issues surrounding the Roman Catholic Church. A skilled interviewer, Liz was one of few reporters allowed exclusive access to Catholic Dioceses throughout Brooklyn and Queens devastated by Super Storm Sandy (the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season). The smart, affable t-v personality is described by colleagues and friends as the person you can to talk to all day about everything from politics to current events and the Pope and never get bored. She is journalism with integrity and humanity.
