Elizabeth Lott has been hired as Store to Door’s new Development Director. Elizabeth Lott joins Store to Door with ten years of program development and fundraising experience. In 2008, she was the founding director of the Serpentine Project, a scholarship program for transition aged foster youth that provided holistic supports including academic counseling, mentor-ship and life skills. She continued to work within the world of child welfare, most recently at the Alliance for Children’s Rights where she managed a $1 million grants portfolio.
Throughout this time, Elizabeth traveled back and forth between Los Angeles and Portland almost monthly to help care for her mother, who is disabled due to a stroke. One morning, several years ago, she stumbled across a Store to Door volunteer at Fred Meyers and quickly enrolled her mom as a client. Store to Door became a valued resource for her family. A Portland native, Elizabeth recently returned to the Pacific Northwest for good, and is thrilled to join the Store to Door team. She is excited to use her professional experience in the service of an organization that has so personally impacted someone she loves.
Elizabeth received a BA from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, and a MA from the University of Washington. In her free time, she enjoys cooking without recipes, hosting impromptu dinner parties, running in this glorious NW rain, and spending time with her friends, husband and children.
