img080Liz Clark is originally from Idaho, spent her childhood in Provo and has been a resident of Salt Lake City since 1992. She loves Utah for its beautiful scenery and outdoor recreation. She is a marathon runner, an avid gardener and frequent traveler. As a girl, Liz’s crafting interests began in a dollhouse. Barbie was okay, but Liz was much more interested in designing her a new wardrobe. At six-years-old, her sewing skills were remedial, so her Barbie tended to favor strapless, tube-style dresses. Liz also decided that Barbie’s wooden dollhouse needed a remodel, so as a girl she repainted and wallpapered that same dollhouse several times over. Several years later, Liz still maintains an interest in fashion and home design; both areas that later became part of her career. Professionally, Liz has spent the last 20 years in retail management in the fields of fashion, music, and now, home decor. She is currently the General Manager of West Elm, a furniture store that believes in promoting local artists and making a positive impact in the community. Her educational background began in Fine Arts, and she finished with a BS in Political Science from the U of U. She has maintained an interest in politics and her community, and is currently the Legislative Chair for her precinct. In 2011, Liz went on to obtain a Master’s in Public Administration from the University of Utah, with an emphasis in Non-Profit Management. She is also the Race Director for a children’s race in which all proceeds benefit a local non-profit. As a board member for Craft Lake City, she is thrilled to be part of an organization whose mission aligns with her own interests and passions. Liz is looking forward to positively contributing to Craft Lake City by utilizing her business expertise, as well as management and event planning skills.
