Elizabeth was born and raised in Olathe, Kansas and after graduating high school she received a degree in Theatre Studies from Boston University. Elizabeth spent the next two years living in New York City before moving to Los Angeles, where she worked as a freelance accounting manager & bookkeeper for over 10 years. Last year Elizabeth moved to Portland and was lucky enough to join the finance team at BBBS Columbia Northwest. This is her first time working in the non-profit sector, and she feels grateful to be part of an organization that continuously supports Portland’s youth and their families. In her free time, Elizabeth likes to spend time with friends, see live music shows and explore all Portland has to offer.
