Liz is a 2005 graduate of our sister SNJM school in Seattle, Holy Names Academy. What an absolutely wonderful connection! Liz earned her BA in political science from Seattle Pacific University in 2008 and minored in history. Liz has a lifelong love of and participation in singing and dancing, but one of her favorite activities (reading) helped bring her to Portland.
Liz first started coming to Portland for weekend trips with her husband, either on her way to the Oregon coast or Ashland. But her love of reading drew her (of course) to explore Powell’s. After their first trip, they fell in love with the city and started coming more and more often. A couple of years ago Liz and her husband decided Portland felt like home, sold their house in the Seattle area in 2016, took a leap of faith, and headed to PDX. They couldn’t be happier with their decision and neither could we!
