"It's a rare thing to collaborate with a ​person who is smart, engaged, and on top ​of every project. Liz Peterson is one of the ​most consistent and professional people ​I've worked with in two decades. In nearly ​5 years of working together, I witnessed ​her talents in writing and editorial sharpen ​and expand. She's a great colleague to ​have, and I would recommend her with ​high regard. "

"I had the pleasure of working with Liz ​during my time at the Forum. A more ​insightful, clever, intelligent, hard-working ​and people-friendly person I would be ​hard-pressed to find. She is someone that ​not only you can work with, but someone ​you can learn from. And she would be a ​tremendous asset to any group/company ​that she is a part of."
