Communications Director

As the Communications Director at MVP, Elizabeth leads the communications team in developing inspiring content that helps raise money to support grassroots work across the country and uplifting the powerful and necessary work MVP’s local grassroots partners are doing to build a future where we can all thrive. As a writer, designer, strategic communications expert, and longtime grassroots activist, she has seen firsthand the power of stories to change the world and is determined to change it for the better.
