A detail oriented and passionate nonprofit professional who has, over the last 18 years in this industry, garnered a vast array of skills. Areas of expertise include: organizational management; grants (researching, writing and management); major gifts (local, regional and national); event planning and execution; fund development; annual giving; planned giving; strategic planning; board relations; volunteer outreach/management as well as marketing, branding, promotions and communications.
Likewise, the environments in which Liz has built these skills extend from community-based service providers to international organizations addressing global concerns.

A Connecticut native, Liz has lived all over the country – from North Carolina and California, to Texas and Oklahoma City and feels that one of her strengths is her ability to communicate with and connect to people from all walks of life. She currently lives near Harrisburg with her 18-year-old daughter – a budding and talented writer, and their beast of a cat.
