Bachelor of Art in Marketing Communications, Mary Baldwin University

Native to the DMV area, Lizette graduated from Mary Baldwin University with a BA in Marketing Communications before moving out West to begin a career in AEC marketing. Her first role out of school at a construction firm in Phoenix, Arizona introduced her to the intricacies of the SOQ, RFI, and RFP documentation process while providing first-hand experience developing marketing collateral and coordinating the execution of project photography. Lizette quickly identified an interest in the design and architecture aspect of the industry and landed herself a position at a small but mighty design firm in the Bay Area that allowed her to don multiple hats while offering a glimpse into the offices of some of today’s most influential technology firms.

Several years spent at the opposite end of the country drove Lizette to return closer to home in January of 2020 and pursue a position at Hickok Cole, where she now serves as the Strategic Pursuits Manager for the firm’s Marketing Department. Responsible for all client-facing and pursuit materials, in addition to overseeing the strategic execution of project photography, Lizette is a master liaison – and does it all (and then some) with a smile on her face and a genuine team attitude. In her spare time, she enjoys getting together with friends and family to watch sports or visit local wineries – preferably both at once.
