Liz Bleacher

Program Coordinator

Liz has worked with GSHPA since 2018 and is on her fourth or fifth career, she has worked as a National Park Ranger, photojournalist, leadership trainer, and library director to name a few.  Liz loves working with people and sharing her love of trying new things including her obsession with knitting.  There is a whole room full of yarn in her house that her husband and two children have learned to live with (around).  Liz lives in York where she volunteers at her local library, and is on the board of directors of Susquehanna Valley Community Mental Health Services, where they help those with complex trauma and addictions, and specialize in serving survivors of sexual exploitation and human trafficking.  When not working or volunteering she is exploring and having adventures with her family and always has her knitting.
