Liz James

Known for her love of organizing and planning, Liz serves as a Client Advisor to JS clients, including Landmark Properties, Cricket Wireless, and Columbus, GA. She utilizes industry insight and company knowledge to support her clients as a strategic partner, helping them to exceed their business goals. Liz currently focuses on internal communications, public relations and brand strategy, although she hopes to one day use her creative flair to help design the back of a cereal box.

Liz joined JS in 2021, bringing a variety of different skillsets and industry knowledge to the agency. Before joining the JS Athens office, Liz spent several years in business development for AmLaw 100 law firms in Atlanta. Additionally, her previous marketing and PR experience in the technology and food and beverage industries now helps her create integrated strategies for her clients, enabling them to effectively reach their target audiences.

She was a pitcher for the Georgia State University softball team and graduated from GSU with a BA in marketing and a master’s in teaching. Playing ball throughout college taught Liz valuable lessons in teamwork, camaraderie and time management. Although teaching high school ultimately turned out not to be her calling, Liz’s teaching degree still comes in handy as she leads and motivates her fellow JS team members.

When Liz is not assisting clients, she is planning overseas adventures. She’s also an excellent parallel parker and prides herself on being able to talk to anyone. A lover of skiing, cats, pickles, camping and interior design, she takes pride in an eclectic taste of hobbies and interests. You can find Liz on the outskirts of Athens (Go Dawgs!) in her hometown of Watkinsville with her husband Jeff and their children Tommy and Violet.
