Board of Governors
Lizzie L. Martinez Alvarez, EMPA15
There is a strong and monotonic relationship between financial scores and parents’ education. I was born in poverty and my parents did not discuss finance or money at the dinner table. Throughout my early childhood, I yearned to know, “Who was Peter and Paul?” I believe financial education is the key to success. We must now unlearn what we have learned, globally connect, and transform to modern financial literacy concepts.
Chief Financial Officer
Financial literacy is foundational for personal and community economic well-being. I am pleased to partner with Financial Services Coalition – Puget Sound to promote financial literacy for all, and particularly for those previously under served communities.
Executive Vice President
I’m passionate about supporting mission-driven organizations that are serving underserved communities. I look forward to working with FSC-PS to empower youth and BIPOC communities through financial education, entrepreneurship training, and workforce development.
I am a digital artist currently working for Electronic Arts.As an immigrant to Canada from India, I realize how challenging it can be for candidates from underrepresented backgrounds to feel included in opportunities in various industries. There are many entrepreneurship opportunities for creatives that I would like to share my knowledge about and explore and volunteering with FSC-PS as program director is a great opportunity for me to support various initiatives in education, mentoring and outreach.
