Leora has a strong passion for philanthropy and more than a decade of experience in the nonprofit sector. She considered a career in non-profit management early on and quickly solidified her decision while serving in the Peace Corps (Republic of Georgia, 2007-2008) after graduating from Temple University’s Business Honors Program with a BBA.
She started CrossFit in early 2013 to supplement her triathlon training and quickly grew to love the sport - so much so that she began searching for a way to incorporate fitness into her career path. Leora started working for Steve’s Club in 2014 as Program Director, then in 2016 became Senior Program Director, and in early 2019 became Executive Director.
Leora holds her CF-L1 and CrossFit Kids Certifications, and is also the Co-Founder and Board Secretary for Fearless Athletics Steve's Club in Philadelphia. She currently lives in Denver, CO.
Lizzie comes to SCNP with a background in non-profit fundraising and program management, having spent the last two years as the Manager of Foundation Relations and Assistant to the Board at the Community College of Allegheny County Educational Foundation in Pittsburgh, PA and prior to that as the Recreation and Aquatics Supervisor for the City of Sedona Department of Parks and Recreation.
She holds her CF-L2 and CrossFit Kids Certifications and is a coach at Arsenal Strength in Pittsburgh. Lizzie loves that Steve’s Club combines two of her passions, working to provide accessible resources and programs to those in need and our incredible fitness community.
As the Program Assistant, Lizzie works with and supports our existing 20+ Local Clubs and helps new Clubs get started.
