Actor Spotlight: Liza Curtiss

Liza Spot

We are thrilled to be collaborating with Satori’s own Liza Curtiss, who is playing the role of Ernestine and also serving as a valuable member of the producing team for WE REMAIN PREPARED. Liza’s insightful leadership, imaginative writing, intensive research, and innovative and expressive approaches to character have been invaluable in the development of this project for well over a year. In fact, her character is born from her investment. Ernestine, famed American industrial psychologist and engineer Lillian Gilbreth’s daughter and co-author of Cheaper by the Dozen, emerged from a desire to highlight Liza’s curious spirit and showcase more of the research we were finding. Liza has already deepened this process immeasurably and we can’t wait to feature her earnest love of the material with you!
