Liz began teaching children with hearing loss in 1980 at the Utah Schools for the Deaf & the Blind. For ten years, she taught preschool through sixth grade students in the Auditory/Oral program in a mainstream setting. In 1990, she began working for Utah State University as a Clinical Instructor, supervising student teachers and teaching classes in the Communication Disorders/Deaf Education Department. In 2001, she began traveling to Nakuru, Kenya and did volunteer work at Ngala School for the Deaf and continues to take groups of travelers with her non-profit group, RaFIKis. In 2005, she became the Director of the Deaf Central Division of USDB, serving over 200 families with children who are deaf or hard of hearing, using ASL/English or Listening and Spoken Language, preschool through high school. In 2010, she regained her senses and retired, only to return, part-time as an Aural Habilitation Specialist. She is pleased to serve at USU once more where she hopes to share her experiences and knowledge with future teachers of the deaf.
