Lizzie serves as The Kavli Foundation's receptionist and administrative assistant for the President’s Office, assisting with calendar management, scheduling and providing direct support as needed. She also supports the CFO in her duties and assists with daily office operations.
Prior to joining Kavli, Lizzie worked as an office manager for a health and performance center in Santa Monica, where she managed daily operations for a small gym, interfacing with clients on a daily basis, resolving disputes and ensuring client satisfaction. Before moving to Los Angeles in 2016, Lizzie served as an assistant coach for NYU’s Women’s Basketball team for two seasons.
Originally from the Midwest, Lizzie received her bachelor of arts degree from the University of Northern Iowa, where she played four years for the women’s basketball team, helping lead the Panthers to the program’s first ever conference championship and consecutive berths to the NCAA tournament. She has since hung up her shoes, but enjoys staying active by running, hiking or playing beach volleyball, and every now and then a pick-up game of basketball. Anything to enjoy the beautiful SoCal weather! Outside of the workplace, Lizzie focuses her time and energy on comedy, doing stand-up on stages across Los Angeles and honing her skills as a writer and performer.
