Congratulations to Liz Doerr, on her election to the Richmond School Board on Tuesday. Liz is one of the encprepreneurs that works for NRV, a local venture and private equity investment company.
Liz has worked in the non-profit sector, politics and business and has been an active volunteer in many community organizations. Her campaign got an unexpected boost last Saturday when she was endorsed by President Obama thanks to her work in Organizing for America in 2010.
Her commitment to children prompted her to make her first run for political office. Liz knocked on 8,000 doors during her campaign in the 1st District, and her tireless work was rewarded when she won 67% of the nearly 12,000 votes cast.
Liz earned an undergraduate degree in Economics and an MBA from William & Mary, and worked in finance at CSX and Norfolk Southern before joining NRV.
