Economics and Business

Lizzie Casey graduated from Agnes Scott in 2006 with a major in Economics & Business and a minor in Psychology.  She grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee and currently lives in New York City.  She is the Senior Director of Consumer Insights & Media Innovation Research for Turner Broadcasting, working across a wide portfolio of media brands including TBS, TNT, CNN, Adult Swim, Cartoon Network, truTV, NCAA March Madness, NBA, MLB, and Bleacher Report.  Lizzie was recently named a Women in Cable Telecommunications Rising Leader and along with her team won the Association of National Advertisers Genius Award for Pioneering Marketing Analytics in 2015.  She credits Agnes Scott Psychology as being the first time that she saw how she could bring together her desire to understand how people make decisions, what influences that (both consciously and subconsciously), and then combining that with her natural math and statistical strengths, the result of which ultimately led her to a career beginning in the Media Research world.  In addition to the foundational career path she found, the best part about attending Agnes Scott was being a part of the Scottie Swim team and the incredible community of women she met in general, many of whom she still calls close friends to this day.  In her free time, she is an avid traveler and, since studying abroad in Barcelona during her junior year at Agnes Scott, she has made it her personal goal to leave the country at least once a year.  Her photo was taken in Hawaii right before she jumped out of the plane and lived to tell the tale.
