Renewable Energy Coordination Office
California State Office
A 31-year career federal employee, Liz Easley is a realty specialist working on renewable energy rights-of-way applications, mineral conveyances, landfill patents and whatever else needs to be accomplished.
She started her federal service as an aircraft mechanic on active duty with the U.S. Air Force from 1977 to 1981. After training at Sheppard Air Force Base in Texas, she was stationed at Norton AFB near San Bernardino, California. After active duty, she cross-trained to become an education and training specialist before assuming her duties as a full-time U.S. Air Force Reserve technician, which she held for the next 12 years, obtaining the rank for master-sergeant. First she worked at Norton AFB, then Travis AFB and finally McClellan AFB in North Highlands. In between performing her duties with the Air Force Reserve, she obtained her real estate license in 1985, and was a residential and commercial realtor.
Affected by the base closure of McClellan, Liz went to work as a realty specialist for the Army Corps of Engineers, where she spent the next 15 years. In 2009 she crossed over to BLM as a realty specialist.
Liz earned a bachelor's degree in business management in 1985. She has also attended the Air Force non-commissioned officer academy.
A native Californian, Liz was born in Newport Beach and raised in Palm Springs. She and her husband, Jeff, now live in Woodland. Her daughter Kimberly and son-in-law David have blessed her with a granddaughter, six year old Rachel, who Liz says gleefully, "is a kick in the pants."
Besides enjoying her family, Liz loves to dance and being around her granddaughter. Outside the federal workforce, Liz and her husband have pursued several entrepreneurial ventures raising ostriches, worms and owning a women's fitness business.
