    Liza arrived in Pine Valley with her mother in 1982 and immediately began causing trouble. She fixed a beauty pageant so that she would win, became obsessed with Greg and tried to break up his relationship with Jenny and then had an affair with Jenny's brother Tad! She broke things off with Tad when she learned that Tad was also sleeping with her mother, Marian. She later had another affair with Tad, costing him his marriage to Dixie.

    In 1996, Liza was diagnosed with a cancerous brain tumor; she was cured and made many changes to her life to become a better person. That didn't last long, however, and Liza was soon up to her old tricks - with Adam Chandler! She and Adam conspired to break up Tad and Brooke. To do that they decided to fake a marriage so that either Brooke or Tad would break it up. Neither showed up and when Liza learned that Adam was double-crossing her, she went through with the wedding and tried to get pregnant to get his millions. She soon fell in love with Adam for real.

    When Dmitri tried to steal WRCW from Stuart after a bad business deal Liza stepped in and got control of the radio station.

    Liza eventually divorced Adam.

    Liza desperately wanted and child and Jake Martin, who was secretly in love with her, agreed to father the child through artificial insemination. Adam learned of the plan and stepped in, replacing Jake's sperm with his own. Liza became pregnant and delivered a girl. Adam eventually came clean, breaking Jake's heart. Liza and Adam had remarried and she tried to make things work, for Colby's sake, but when she realized Adam was trying to drive her crazy, she ran from Pine Valley and went into hiding.

    Although Colby came back to Pine Valley as a teenager, Liza remained in hiding until 2009, when she decided to face her past again, and came back to reconnect with Colby. Liza had a one-night stand with Zach Slater and helped out with numerous PV court cases.

    She made a deal with Jake to secretly adopt Amanda's baby, who they were trying to protect from David. She pretended to be pregnant and faked child birth in order to pull off the scam.

    Liza was actually given an a different baby, not Jake and Amanda's. While she bonded with the baby, the birth mother, Bailey, showed up to reclaim her son.

    Bailey left town with her son, but the supposed birth father, Damon (who was later revealed not to be the father) stayed and learned he was actually Tad Martin's son. He also developed a relationship with Colby, which Liza did not approve of.

    Liza did her best to sabotage Colby and Damon's relationship and even tried to seduce him, but nothing worked. It only served to destroy the budding reunion she and Tad were working on, as well as her relationship with her daughter.

    Next, Liza was named District Attorney and her first case was to prosecute Greenlee for David's murder. However, David turned up alive. She focused on building a relationship with Colby, but slept with her boyfriend Damon.

    Liza was unable to get Colby to forgive her so she threw herself into her work and also began sleeping with David.
