After completing an MA and professional training in Social Work in 1988, Liz spent five years working for Social Services and charities in the UK, before moving on to work in the international development and humanitarian sectors. Assignments have taken her to the Balkans, Caucasus, West and Central Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia Pacific. Liz has spent the bulk of her career serving in charity leadership roles, joining MapAction, a humanitarian data and mapping charity, in 2013 as its Chief Executive. During this period, Liz supported the evolution of MapAction’s technical services, enabling data driven decision making for partners.

Liz has served on several Boards as a Trustee promoting professional practice and grant making. Liz was awarded an OBE in 2021 for services to humanitarian crisis operations. She lives on the Mendips with her scruffy dog, Nell.
