After spending over 10 years treating women with high heel related pain in Toronto’s financial district and celebrities in Hollywood, Dr. Liza questioned whether beauty really had to result in pain. Not being able to provide her stylish and fashion forward patients with suitable high heeled options, Dr. Liza decided to design her own revolutionary comfortable and functional line of shoes.
In May 2017, Dr Liza was awarded the Trailblazer and Professional Impact award by the NCN and in October 2017 won Afroglobal's Science and Technology award for the design and development of the dr. Liza pump. She was name one of 150 Extraordinary Canadians by the Transformation institute in 2018 and in 2019 named one of the most influential people of African descent in business and entrepreneurship. She also won the 2019 Woman of Inspiration’s Innovator award and was the platinum winner for the Toronto Star’s readers choice awards for best foot care in 2019.
