Elizabeth is a tri-sector leader, specializing in social impact strategies that engage businesses, non-profit organizations and governments. She has worked as senior staff and consultant on advancing a wide range of issues: health, empowerment of women and youth, the arts, and international development. Passionate about the power of collaboration, she focuses on bringing together actors from different sectors to create value for their organizations and the broader community.
Through her leadership as a consultant, facilitator, and manager, young adults better understand themselves and their world through volunteering at home and abroad, citizens and the government more easily dialogue on foreign aid, banks have adopted new ways to support Aboriginal peoples, and international development organizations have found new ways to partner with business. As a part-time professor at Humber College, Elizabeth has designed and taught courses in management, training, and strategic planning skills for NGO students. Most recently, Elizabeth has been working as a consultant, supporting non-profit and business clients to work across sectors and collaborate with diverse stakeholders to create business and social impact.

In 2012, she was a recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for her work on social justice issues.
Elizabeth is also Mom to two young daughters who mostly-willingly join her to ‘sleep out for Syrians’, referee community ping pong tournament fundraisers and vote as a part of their citizenship education.
