Chief Executive Officer
Liz did not always hold the value for life that she does now. As an LPN, Liz worked for an abortion clinic in the early 80’s, believing she was helping women. As she began to recognize God speaking to her heart, she found herself whispering to a woman on the abortion table one day, “You don’t have to go through with this.”
Tragically, Liz had also made her own decision to have an abortion. While dealing with the emotional aftermath of having made that choice, Liz received the forgiveness of Jesus Christ for her own abortion and the countless ones with which she directly assisted during those four years.
After coming to faith in Jesus Christ and receiving His forgiveness, Liz recognized that every life matters to God and every unborn child is worth saving...that He is the Creator of life and that He has a beautiful plan for every life. This revelation drew Liz to serve at Care Net beginning in 1985, first as a volunteer and then as CEO since 1986.
Liz has chosen to be pro-abundant life because being pro-abundant life goes beyond saving the lives of unborn children – as critical as that is.
“We’re about rebuilding lives and families. Redemption starts when we give life a foothold – but it doesn’t stop there. Children need flourishing families where they can be nurtured toward their full potential. Young parents need to be empowered to build a healthy family and dads are an important part of the equation – to empower them to become the fathers their children need them to be,” said Liz.
Liz finds co-laboring with the Lord in the lives of the people He loves the most rewarding part of being invested in Care Net. She loves witnessing God at work in the lives of people...changing hearts and minds and seeing lives saved both physically and eternally.
Liz and her husband, Dan, are part of City Church. In her spare time, Liz enjoys being with her four grandchildren, boating with her family and friends, and exploring God’s amazing creation through travel and hiking.
