Lizveth Mendez-Witt

Lizveth joined New Moms in April 2020 after God heard her prayers, and guided her in finding an organization that shared her values and where she’d be able to use her talents to advance the mission. In her role as Chief Financial Officer, Lizveth directs the financial and associated business matters affecting New Moms. As a member of the executive team, she provides strategic financial leadership that both contributes to growth and ensures sound financial management.

Lizveth has over 20 years of experience in the public and private sector, worked on community-related issues, and has been involved in politics. Lizveth graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish Literature, and she earned a Master of Business Administration from the University of Notre Dame. Lizveth earned the John Cardinal O’Hara Society Fellowship, a civic and merit-based fellowship awarded to a few select students, every semester while at Notre Dame.
