    Liz's passion for outdoor recreation and concerns over the changing climate brought her to the renewable energy workforce nearly a decade ago (Sunrun). Her desire to make direct, local impact, her eye for operational efficiency, and her love of data found her making the transition to the nonprofit space in 2014 (GRID Alternatives), and she has not looked back. Liz is excited to be a part of BC3 as the Operations Director. She holds a master’s degree in writing from Sarah Lawrence College. Liz lives in Boulder, Colorado with her husband and son, and loves to spend the weekends exploring nearby trails.
