Liz Peterson, Chicago
"I joined Landmarks Illinois as a Skyline Council member in 2018 to network with other young professionals and meet leaders in the preservation field. Growing up, my grandmother was an active member of the historical society in my hometown of Maplewood, Minnesota. I loved touring sites with her and that feeling was reinvigorated when I began working for a company that specialized in historic renovation projects. As a member of Landmarks Illinois, I’ve gained valuable leadership opportunities and have met many mentors, friends and people who inspire me to continue incorporating preservation principles into my personal and professional life."
