Liz Schneider, B.S. 2014

As a corporate sustainability consultant with global consulting firm WSP, Liz Schneider helps some of the world’s largest companies create sustainability and energy solutions that are good for both the environment and the company’s bottom line. “Given the urgency of the environmental problems the planet is facing and the current political climate, it’s been amazing to see private companies take a leadership role in advancing sustainability,” Schneider said. She began her consulting career after graduation by managing wetland restoration projects in San Diego before pursuing a Master’s degree in climate policy at Johns Hopkins University. Schneider credits the IoES Senior Practicum with beginning her career in consulting by helping her realize the satisfaction of seeing months of work produce real-world results. “It’s so cool to see an idea you helped come up with come to life in front of you,” she said. “There’s nothing like knowing you’ve made the world a better place in a small, tangible way.”
