Director of Social Media
Liza received her Bachelors in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 1999 and has been working with the team since November 2015.
She began her career working as an account executive for Infinity Broadcasting. After a year of advertising sales, Liza started working for her family’s full-service advertising agency, Janet Leslie Productions. She worked on comprehensive advertising & marketing plans for clients. She also sold, produced and hosted their television show, Connecticut Business Today which aired on WTNH-News Channel 8 until 2008. In 2012, Liza took over the agency and re-named it Q Media Works, after her nickname “Liza Q”.
When social media became a marketing force, Liza was perfectly positioned to take advantage of her understanding of client’s marketing needs and communicate their business personality in this arena. It became clear that social media was going to be a necessary part of the synergy that was created between Digital Marketing and traditional marketing, and therefore teaming up with Zero Gravity Marketing (ZGM) was a perfect fit.
