New Employees!

Liz Watson, Director of Support Services

Liz is from the United Kingdom, where she worked as a Family Law attorney and mediator while volunteering extensively in the rape crisis sector. Utah has been her home for the last ten years. She originally worked for the Utah Domestic Violence Coalition, delivering training and technical assistance all over the state. This experience allowed her to get to know all of the nonprofit domestic/sexual violence programs very well, to appreciate Utah's cultural and geographical diversity, and to learn about domestic violence policy at a federal and state level.

In 2019, Liz became Director of the Salt Lake Area Family Justice Center and appreciated the opportunity to collaborate with multiple governmental and non-governmental agencies to provide tailored avenues for survivors to access services as easily and safely as possible. During the pandemic, she stepped into the role of Vice President of Domestic Violence and Residential Services at YWCA Utah and oversaw shelter services, case management, child advocacy, transitional housing, and community work.

Diego Moscoso, Executive Assistant

Diego was born in Lima, Peru, where he lived for the first eight years of his life. He moved to Park City in 2002 and attended Westminster College, where he earned his bachelor's degree in International Business with a minor in Spanish.

Previously, Diego worked as a front desk agent for the Silverado Lodge hotel located in The Canyon’s Village, and before that worked at the Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Westminster College as an Administrative Coordinator. In his free time, Diego likes to spend time with his family and loved ones and travels whenever possible.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Spring Luncheon! We could not have done it without you.
It was wonderful seeing our community gather together for our cause. We want you all to know how important your contributions are not only for our organization, but for those who are accessing our services.

We are so close to our $350,000 goal. Any small donation will help us to reach this number, and is greatly appreciated.

We hope that you know how overjoyed we are that you have chosen to be a part of Peace House.
