Liz Smith, Founder & Independent Educational Consultant
About our Founder
Originally from Chicago, Liz Smith and her family moved to Wilmington, NC 12 years ago so they could avoid shoveling snow and learn how to surf. Liz received her certificate in Independent Educational Consulting from the University of California at Irvine and is a graduate of the Independent Educational Consultants Association’s Summer Training Institute. Liz is also proud to represent the “Saints” (BA, St. Lawrence University, class of 1991) and “Maroons” (MPP, University of Chicago, Harris School of Public Policy, 1997).
Liz visits between 20 and 30 colleges each year.
