Casey Gerry Schenk Francavilla Blatt & Penfield LLP

Liz Mackres has been with Casey Gerry Schenk Francavilla Blatt & Penfield LLP since 1989, when she was hired by the firm as Information Systems Manager, after serving in similar capacities with San Diego Credit Association and Torrey Pines Bank. She has been firm administrator since 2001, managing a staff of 29 employees.  She is responsible for the firm’s financial reporting and employee benefits administration.
