paw Team Spotlight
Elizabeth
Hospital Manager

After obtaining her English degree from UC Davis, Liz spent 10 years backpack traveling overseas and working seasonally while living in various states, national parks, ski resort, and cruise ships. Settling down in Corvallis, Oregon, Elizabeth started a long history of nonprofit employment, beginning with an animal shelter. Finding this work rewarding, Elizabeth added three more animal welfare organizations to her management repertoire in Nevada when she moved to this fine state in 2003 with two old black labs, 10 cats and two horses and then earned a certificate in grant writing from TMCC and shared that expertise with other non-animal nonprofits as well. Elizabeth had been a dedicated client of Lakeside for over ten years prior to VCA's acquisition and was thrilled to take advantage of an opening as hospital manager. Elizabeth shares her leisure time with a longtime boyfriend who has become accustomed to the ebb and flow of a myriad of rescue animals that at present includes a Border Collie mix, a Chihuahua Papillion mix, four cats, and one horse.
