Associate Director of Advancement, Operations and Stewardship
Liz joined the Vermont Academy community in 2011 when her daughter, Wyeth, enrolled as a freshman day student. As a VA parent, Liz has seen firsthand the transformational impact that VA has had on her daughter and her peers. To the title of proud VA parent, Liz now adds Director of the Vermont Academy Fund as a member of the Advancement Office. Liz is excited to harness her professional experience, volunteer interests, and passion for Vermont Academy into this role.
A 25-year veteran of Eastern Mountain Sports, an outdoor specialty retailer headquartered in Peterborough, NH, Liz held a variety of positions as she worked her way up through the organization. From positions in sales, customer service, and store management to ones tied to brand identity and strategic planning, it was a varied and fulfilling career.
Over the years, Liz has been involved with independent schools as a volunteer on a myriad of levels. Prior to her time at Vermont Academy, Liz played an active volunteer role at The Grammar School in Putney, VT, where she served as Trustee Chair for five years, participating in fundraising and serving on the Strategic Planning and Head-of-School Search Committees.
When not on the road connecting with our broader VA community, Liz can often be seen around campus with her camera—blending her love of photography with her enjoyment of cheering for our VA Wildcats. Along with photography, Liz’s other interests include a variety of outdoor pursuits that she enjoys with her family including skiing, hiking, and kayaking/canoeing.
Liz lives in Westmoreland, NH, with her husband, Ned, an Assistant Professor of English at Landmark College, and their daughter Wyeth ’15.
