Elizabeth joined the USF COPH in 2012, working in the Global Disaster Management, Humanitarian Relief, and Homeland Security (GHH) program as the assistant to the director and began teaching courses as an adjunct instructor. Her experiences in the field span from working in business management and program development on public health projects pertaining to international economic development in post-conflict recovery to local disaster planning. Her current teaching activities as a Visiting Instructor focus on teaching courses in international humanitarian relief, disaster management, and citizen engagement in homeland security. Elizabeth has a strong interest in examining and evaluating disaster management systems working primarily with vulnerable populations, looking at the importance of community engagement and multidisciplinary collaboration, advancing the scholarship of teaching and learning through the use of experiential learning, assisting with refugee integration and health, and looking at how the built environment and social implications impact at-risk neighborhoods. Elizabeth serves as Lead for the National Experiential Learning and Leadership (ELL) in EM Special Interest Group (SIG) through FEMA, Lead for the Community Preparedness and Resilience Track for the National Homeland Security Conference (NHSC), Director of the USF Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and Vice-President of the Board of Directors for the Refugee and Migrant Women's Initiative (RAMWI).
