Lizz Shaw is the Finance Director of SAIL, the Disability Network of the U.P., working mostly on back end operations. She has a degree in Business Management from Northern Michigan University and feels fortunate to be working in a position that combines her professional aspirations and desire to affect social change. She returned to Marquette after a short move out of state, as she found there really is no place like home in the U.P.!
What Our Team Has To Say.
"I want to improve acceptance, community integration and employment opportunities for people in my community who have disabilities. They are individuals with strengths and challenges just like everyone else."
"As an intern at SAIL, I have been able to direct many people toward programs or organizations that may help people live more independently. Every time a goal is accomplished, the feeling of success is totally noticeable. Even with one client at a time, the community is noticing that this organization cares about our clients and the communities in which they serve."
"Disability Network has allowed me to share ways to deal with social issues, given me new ideas about technology and other accommodations, helped me to share and release stress, and increased my self esteem."
