Her function included community improvement programs through neighborhood cleanup projects and education campaigns to empower residents to improve their community's environment. In 2009, Liza accepted a promotion with the City of San Antonio to spearhead the City’s corporate environmental responsibility initiatives with the Office of Environmental Policy. Liza's passion for a sustainable community has her serving as an executive board member for the United States Green Building Council’s Central Texas Chapter, Vice-President of the Beautify San Antonio Association and a member of the San Antonio Water System’s Citizens Conservation Committee.
