Meet Liz Director, our newest member of the SOWA team!

by School's Out Washington | | Posted under School's Out News

Liz is the Director of Finance and Administration for School’s Out Washington. In this role she manages SOWA’s finance and accounting teams and provides leadership for the organization in financial forecasting, strategy, and processes. Get to know Liz better and learn more about what brought her to the SOWA team.

Where are you from?
I grew up in the Yakima Valley in central Washington. I attended college at the University of Washington and have remained in Seattle ever since.

What do you like to do in your down time?
I’m not much of an adventurer! Spending time with family and friends, reading a good book, going to the gym, and fixing a good dinner are all high on my list of things I like to do.

What brought you to SOWA?
Through my work at Launch, I knew how impactful an organization School’s Out Washington is. So many people I admire and respect know so many people here at SOWA that they admire and respect. I felt incredibly confident that the values SOWA publicizes on the outside are the values they live on the inside. Additionally, the opportunity to work with an organization that has a statewide reach was very appealing to me. I still have family in Central and Eastern Washington, and being a native Washingtonian has given me many opportunities to explore all over the state. Being able to support children throughout our state is one of the highlights for me in coming to SOWA.

Tell us one thing you are proud of?
I really do believe that we all have a responsibility to make the world a better place. There are so many ways to do that, but for me, helping children learn and grow has always been what resonates most. The youth we support today will grow up to be the adults who change the world tomorrow, so helping them has a ripple effect for many years in the future. I’m proud that I’ve found a way to put my skill set to use in organizations that are committed to that work and really make a difference.
