Elizabeth Florez

(Resource Development Associate, Local)

Liz joined the DIBS team in June 2018 as a member of our AmeriCorps VISTA team. As a Resource Development Associate Liz is helping secure grants for new projects to help DIBS expand, reach new students and analyze our effectiveness. Liz hails from Florida and studied Anthropology and Archaeology at the University of Central Florida. She has spent most of her life tucked away in libraries either volunteering, working or just enjoying the silent weight of words. Books open new worlds. Liz believes DIBS is helping to hand children the keys not only to their future success but to places full of untapped possibilities. She is thrilled to be working with DIBS to bring more books into childrens’ lives.
