Liz spent over 20 years as a personal financial planner with Ernst & Young.  She is both a CPA and a CFP.  Liz transitioned to the residential construction industry to lend her financial acumen to the family business.  With an eye towards the smallest of details, Liz keeps the business and each project organized while it progresses.  Liz holds a B.A. in Economics from Duke University and her Masters in Accounting from Rice University
