Liz Swanson

I am a nonprofit professional with over 30 years of experience in the nonprofit sector, ranging from Executive Director, Interim Executive Director, Development Director, Board President, and Consultant. I have served major universities, non-governmental organizations, public schools, private schools, social service agencies, community organizations, religious organizations, youth agencies, and health organizations.

As an Interim consultant, I am ardent – ‘passionate’ – about all things nonprofit and helping organizations achieve their goals towards long-term success.  What brings me joy after three decades in the philanthropic space is continuously meeting a myriad of strong-hearted people along the way, all committed to making a positive impact on our world.  With this, I’m excited and honored to be HEP’s Interim ED during this time of executive transition and to play a part, both big and small, in advancing its mission towards achieving its important vision.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family; reading historical fiction novels; exploring the beautiful Pacific Northwest; sitting down to good food, wine and conversation with friends; and exercising so I can enjoy the good food and wine.
