Liz comes to Amplifier from Repair the World, where she led the organization’s expansion, fundraising, communications, and operations. During her time at Repair the World, the organization grew from 5 to 8 cities and launched several major national digital campaigns. Liz began her career in grassroots community development with University of Missouri Extension and has worked at NEXT: A Division of Birthright Israel Foundation, the Jewish Federation of St. Louis, UJA-Federation of New York, and The Jewish Education Project. While at UJA-Federation of New York, Liz served as the professional staff for two giving circles, including one that she launched. Liz lives in Brooklyn with her husband, Jeremy Brown, and two children.
Liz succeeds Joelle Asaro Berman, who joined the team in 2015 as Amplifier's first Program Director and became Executive Director in January 2017. During her tenure at Amplifier, Joelle achieved many milestones, including launching Amplifier's signature programs, which continue today.
Liz writes: “I’ve had the opportunity to observe the growth of Amplifier as an organizational partner, and I am moved by the power of giving circles to enable people to build deep relationships and act on their values. I’m grateful to Joelle Asaro Berman, and I’m thrilled to be working with the incredible team - staff, board, coaches, volunteers - that Joelle and Felicia Herman built. I'm looking forward to hearing from all of you as we build the next stage of Amplifier together.”
Liz will be officially joining the Amplifier team on January 29, and she is available now at [email protected]. Please give her a warm welcome to the Amplifier community!
