We have some exciting news! We are delighted to announce that Liz Montgomery was selected as our next Executive Director. Liz comes to us from Inland Northwest SIDS Foundation in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.  A 12-year veteran of the non-profit sector, Liz holds a Bachelor of Science in Education and a certificate in Non-Profit Leadership from the University of Idaho. She specializes in high-level fundraising, donor relations, and program management.
Liz is a visionary leader who brings to Northwest Infant Survival and SIDS Alliance a deep experience in civic engagement, program development, family services and has received numerous commendations for her community involvement.
Liz will head the executive department and be responsible for managing our board of directors, volunteer groups and operations. She’ll serve as the main public contact and spokesperson for the Northwest Infant Survival and SIDS Alliance and will represent the company and all professional business capacities. 
After the death of her 5 ½-month-old son Mason due to accidental sleep-related death in 2003, Liz has been and continues to be passionate about educating medical professionals, emergency responders, parents and caregivers on Safe Infant Sleep practices and providing emotional support to those who have experienced a pregnancy, infant or child loss. 
Liz is honored to serve as Executive Director and to be able to continue the life-saving work began in 1961 by founder Mary Dore.  Her previous employment with NISSA combined with 12 years of non-profit management and personal experience with the death of her own baby due to SUID, makes her the perfect choice to continue the NISSA legacy.
