Liz has been a moderator of r/changemyview since mid-2013, initially participating in the subreddit to practice her argumentation techniques for law school. When CMV launched a blog at changemyview.net, Liz was a key contributor, often exploring the issues CMV was facing. Due to her longtime CMV experience, her interest in its meta-analysis, and her relevant skills as a practicing attorney, Liz joined the founding team of Change A View.
