She currently is the head voice and speech at Maggie Flanigan Studio, and teaches at The Linklater Center for Voice and Language, Fordham University and NYU. In 2016, Liz co-founded Beyond Fluency with Katya Pronin to help non-native English speakers express themselves more fully and freely through writing, thinking, vocal and physical techniques.
