Elizabeth manages SELC’s team of frontline fundraisers, with the goal of increasing philanthropy by 50 percent by 2025. She also manages a small portfolio of donors. Her career in Development included 13 years at the University of Virginia and six years in San Francisco with San Francisco Opera and the American Heart Association.

Defeating the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and a proposal for offshore drilling in the Mid-Atlantic are two of SELC’s accomplishments that make her proud.

St. Simon’s Island, Georgia, and the Great Smokey Mountains in North Carolina are two of her favorite places in the Southeast.

The key to SELC’s success is our people. Consider joining our team to defend this region’s air, water, and natural treasures.
