Lizzie McWilliams '06

Lizzie McWilliams graduated in 2006 from Washington and Lee after completing her degree in Business Journalism. After a couple of journalism internships while at W&L, Lizzie decided she wanted to do something different with her degree after graduation. Lizzie headed up to NYC and started working at Edelman (a large public relations agency) in their financial communications and investor relations practice. She then moved to DC and began working in the communications department of a client that she worked with while at Edelman -- a private equity and asset management firm. From there, Lizzie completed a brief stint in marketing for a small consulting firm, and then spent some time working on PR and marketing for an international law firm based in Washington. Lizzie is now leading public relations for a segment of the business in the Americas (North, South, Central America and Israel) for a Big 4 accounting firm.
