She raised over half a million dollars in angel funding, developed the strategic plan and moved to Colorado to open the flagship schools in Denver. Due to Liz's leadership, GALS is the first Colorado home-grown educational network to expand beyond the state's border, as GALS Los Angeles opened in 2016, and GALS Idaho is set to open in 2020. Liz has spent the bulk of her career working for CEO’s and Philanthropists in manifesting their visions and starting up corporate and philanthropic projects locally, nationally and internationally. Former non-profit clients include the Institute for International Sport, The American Montessori Society, The Rose Institute (for homeless youth) and a former Prime Minister of the State of Israel.

Liz received her undergraduate degree from Brown University and earned her master’s degree at the Hebrew Union College. Liz believes her passion for comprehensive health in schools as well as her fierce belief in embodied leadership and living, stems from her upbringing in the world of competitive athletics where she competed in Division I Field Hockey. Liz considers herself a force in organizational behavior with a focus on an equity and gender lens.
