Liz is the President of the Brady Education Foundation, whose mission is to close the opportunity/achievement gap for children living in low-resourced and under-represented communities. Elizabeth is also a Research Associate Professor in the Developmental Psychology Program at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Prior to shifting her primary professional efforts to the Foundation, Elizabeth was a Scientist at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where her main research focus was early care and education environments and school readiness skills of children living in low-resourced and under-represented communities. More specifically, her work included the investigation of the long-term outcomes of the Abecedarian Project; the exploration of the associations among race, income, parenting, childcare quality and language development and school readiness; and the investigation of factors that influence why and how parents search for and select child care. Elizabeth received her doctorate in Developmental Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
