Elizabeth helps clients navigate complex energy infrastructure proceedings before FERC.  Her practice focuses on hydropower and natural gas proceedings, where she advises clients on a wide range of federal energy and environmental statutes, including the Federal Power Act, Natural Gas Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, and National Historic Preservation Act.  


Elizabeth draws on her nearly six years of experience working in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Office of the General Counsel, where she worked on a number of hydropower license and natural gas certificate proceedings. While at the Commission, she gained experience working with a variety of federal and state environmental and natural resource agencies, Native American tribes, community and landowner groups, and NGOs, and brings this experience to her clients at Troutman Sanders to help them smoothly navigate the complex federal permitting landscape.

Elizabeth began her career in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Wastewater Management, where she worked on water quality permitting initiatives at the state and regional level.
