In 2002, Eliza co-founded the Women@Work Network, a full life-cycle contingency staffing and recruitment agency with an active network of nearly 9000 experienced mid- to senior-management level women in the greater NYC area. Now celebrating 10 years in business, Women@Work’s client companies include everything from Fortune 100 giants and well-established mid-sized companies to rapidly growing entrepreneurial businesses.

In her career counseling practice Eliza advises candidates on goalsetting, job search strategy and successful interview techniques. Early in her own career Eliza witnessed the evolution of professional women’s issues while working on the staff of Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro in Washington, D.C. She then developed research and public relations expertise with a small woman-owned business that served high-profile clients such as The International Herald Tribune, and later with the Public Broadcasting Service managing the PR effort for its Adult Learning Service. Eliza worked for a year after her first child was born, and then left the full-time workforce for four years as she raised her children. She continued to develop communications and research skills through volunteer and freelance projects until her children were in elementary school. Eliza then returned to the workforce in earnest, establishing her own consulting firm and working with prestigious clients such as N.W. Ayer, where she worked on the De Beers, KitchenAid and GM accounts; UBS Paine Webber and Plan Sponsor magazine. In addition to professional pursuits, Eliza is an active community volunteer and mother of two adult daughters.
