She has received many awards as a pianist and has given concerts all over the world, including at Carnegie Hall.
She has been directing church choirs since 2005, many of which included children, youth and adult groups in South Korea, Scotland, North Carolina and Virginia in the United States. Prior to coming to Peace, she was the pianist and organist at Pender Hill United Methodist Church in Fairfax.

Beyond her career, Liz has a deep love for spreading the Gospel through her gift, and hopes to use it to uplift the community. She finds the most solace and purpose while serving the ministry, and is excited to give back to our Lord and Savior through worship/fellowship. She says, “I perceive my main role as a messenger, sharing how to utilize music; the great outlet & gift that God gave us. I strongly hope the true joyfulness of praising God can motivate people to praise more and share more.”
