Lizette is an advocate at heart and is ardently committed to advocating for employees’ rights. She feels a duty to vulnerable and often neglected workers, and her early work in the service of others awakened a passion to be a voice for the underserved.

Her legal clerking gave her first-hand knowledge of how much advocacy can a make difference in someone’s life.
