Building on a valuable foundation
After graduating as a business and finance major, I worked for the Tall Timbers Land Conservancy, the largest regional land trust in Florida and Georgia. I completed a master’s degree in Florida State University’s urban and regional planning program and a law degree at the Florida Coastal School of Law in Jacksonville. I work at the Ausley & McMullen law firm in Tallahassee, where my practice areas focus on environmental and land use law, administrative law, and litigation. Critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, and analytical skills are the things that have been most important to me in my career. I learned those things in business classes at Hollins, and they formed a valuable foundation.Elizabeth Barron ’04
