Elizabeth Klc was born in Logan, Utah and lived in Elwood, Utah. She and her three brothers and one sister were raised on the family farm until she moved to Provo to attend college.
In 2008, Klc graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelors Degree in English and a Minor in Business Management. She worked in an accounting firm and traveled for several years, teaching English in Tonga, living in France for eighteen months and studying at Xiamen University in China. She decided to continue her education by earning a Masters in Public Administration and studied at her alma mater for the next two years and graduated in 2013 focusing on Finance and Nonprofit Management.
During her education, Klc focused on social innovation and effective management practices while effecting change. She was the Director of the Social Innovation Competition and Academy and had an internship with Ashoka, a leader in social entrepreneurship. However, after her world travels, she realized that while she wanted to help those living in third-world countries, there were those immediately around her that could benefit from those same principles governing large international aid organizations. With this in mind, she happily accepted a position with UAC working for the Utah Behavioral Healthcare Committee. She is excited to be working for a group that serves those suffering from substance use disorder and mental illness.
Ever the Utahn, Klc loves to ski in the winter and the summer. Ever the wanderer, she is always looking for another adventure and to eat good food.
