A creative problem solver with a background in graphic design, event planning, and fundraising, Liz brings more than a decade of social impact sector experience to her role at the LOR Foundation. As the organization’s engagement manager, she works with community officers to develop in-person and online strategies that promote awareness about how LOR can support locally-led solutions.
Originally from State College, Pennsylvania, Liz received her BFA in graphic design and advertising from The School of Visual Arts in New York City before relocating to Guatemala to work for the team behind Central America’s first female, Indigenous-led secondary school. After two years in Guatemala, Liz returned to the States, welcoming the chance to invest locally through consulting work with many Colorado-based nonprofits. During her time as an independent contractor, Liz’s work in event planning, grant writing, graphic design, and development strategy helped raise more than $5 million for mission-driven organizations.
Looking ahead, Liz is enthusiastic about continuing to grow her creative skillset and supporting engagement strategies in person whenever the opportunity to spend time in LOR communities arises.
Liz lives in North Denver with her husband Matt, son Franklin, and boxer/whippet mix Winnie. When she’s not at work, Liz can be found making lists, planning parties, or trying to catch up on laundry.
