Inspired People: Meet Elizabeth
The faces behind the mission at Make-A-Wish® America make up a group of diverse people working together toward a common goal: to grant life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. Our dynamic, inspired culture centers around five core values: child focus, integrity, impact, innovation and community. In our #InspiredPeople series, we highlight exceptional employees who exemplify these values and work hard to help us get closer to achieving our vision of granting the wish of every eligible child. Meet Elizabeth.
Elizabeth’s no stranger to transforming lives. Prior to joining the Make-A-Wish® America team, she granted wishes at three different Make-A-Wish chapters across the U.S.
“Each role I’ve held the last eight years has been different,” said Elizabeth. “They have provided me extensive growth opportunities, career development and skills, enabling me to continue to successfully grant wishes in my current role.”
Today, Elizabeth partners with every Make-A-Wish chapter and various television networks, multi-channel networks and publicists to make wishes come true.
“Every wish that comes across my desk equates to providing hope for a child and family again. It gives them something to look forward to – it’s truly the best job in the world!”
No matter what Elizabeth’s work entails, she always puts one thing first: wish kids.
“The courageous spirit and strength of our wish kids inspires me to continue the work I do every day. They’ve helped me understand the importance of compassion, empathy and community, as well as live each day to the fullest.”
Thank you, Elizabeth, for providing hope alongside us.
