Elizabeth McKenna Managing Director and Board of Directors
Liz co-facilitates the Pregnancy, Infant, and Toddler Loss Support Group at Hope Floats. She found Hope Floats after experiencing a significant loss of her own. Once she realized that healing could happen through connection, she was eager to connect with as many people as she could. Although she works in medical insurance, her passion is volunteer work. She has experience with kinship foster care, adoption, and loving and supporting friends and family through loss, through mental illness, as well as addiction. Liz understands that life isn’t always straight and narrow but support and connection can truly help ease the pain.
Liz graduated from UMass Amherst with a double major in sociology and psychology with a minor in education. She has always enjoyed working with people and volunteering in the community.
