Liz Avanzato

Volunteer and Event Manager

Liz began attending Redeemer in 2010 and instantly knew that she had found her church home. In 2013 she became East Side volunteer and event manager and has enjoyed every moment since! On Sunday you will often find her outside the auditorium where the volunteers sign in. If you visit her, she will give you gum! Liz was a Spanish major in college which required that she study abroad in Mexico (for one semester), but she loved it so much that she ended up staying for six years teaching English as a foreign language, studying for her master’s in applied linguistics, and enjoying all the culinary wonders that Mexico has to offer. Originally from the great state of New Jersey, Liz now calls the Upper East Side home. She spends her free time listening to podcasts, playing touch football, trying out new recipes, and riding the M86 crosstown bus because she lives all the way on York Avenue! “Beyoglu - Though I’m never quite sure how to pronounce my favorite UES restaurant, nothing beats the mezze platter!”
