As Senior Program Officer for Education and Migration , Eliza leads ICF’s nearly $3M Education portfolio with the goal of expanding educational opportunities for vulnerable children in Mexico and other regions of Latin America to succeed in school, careers and life. Since 2018, Eliza has also steered ICF’s programmatic work related to immigrants, refugees, and deportees in the San Diego-Tijuana Border, which has resulted in approximately $600,000 in grants and capacity development in the region. She also oversees ICF’s growing portfolio of grants in Central America.

Eliza joined ICF in August 2015 and has served in several roles including interim Program Officer for Environment and Conservation, the inaugural Marketing & Development Manager, and most recently, Program Officer for Education and the Arts.

Previously she had interned at the Millennium Challenge Corporation, Agora Partnerships, and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

Eliza holds a Master of Public Affairs (MPAFF) from the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin and a B.S. in Foreign Service from Georgetown University. She has over 25 years of experience living and working in Latin America, and academic experiences in China and South Africa.
