Capital Campaign Manager

Liza Springmeyer


Liza joined the Peace House team in August 2015. She is excited to use her skills to grow and strengthen the impact of Peace House—breaking the cycle of domestic violence. Before coming to Peace House, she managed the $11M capital campaign to expand and renovate the Ronald McDonald House on South Temple in Salt Lake City and created a Ronald McDonald Family Room at Primary Children’s Hospital. Her focus is on major gifts, donor stewardship, and community engagement.
