Liz comes to Tipping Point as an old friend, having worked alongside the team for years as both a grantee and funding partner. Most recently, she served as the Chief Finance and Growth Officer at First Place for Youth, launching the Affiliate Network to expand the organization outside of California. Prior to her time at First Place, Liz was a Senior Portfolio Associate at the Edna McConnell Clark Foundation, where she was responsible for the Foundation’s sourcing efforts and supported several grantees as they expanded to serve more youth and deepened their outcomes and evidence. Liz received her BS in Finance from Boston College and earned an MPA in Nonprofit Management and an MA in Philanthropic Studies from Indiana University. When she’s not in the office, Liz loves trail running on Mt. Tam and taking her dog to Crissy Field to frolick.
