All of us at SVA are shocked and saddened by the news that Liz Albornoz was killed in a tragic accident in February. Liz was a wonderful friend and a valued colleague who shared our commitment to alleviating disadvantage to improve the lives of all Australians. She made a profound contribution at SVA, where her passion and spirit inspired us to aim higher. Her bright and kind presence will be dearly missed.
Our thoughts are with her husband, daughters, family and loved ones. We are also thinking about the many others injured and impacted by this tragedy.
‘I have always been passionate about helping others and looking for opportunities to volunteer. At SVA I am able to bring together my interests and skills and work with people who share the same values. We all care about building a fairer Australia.’
Liz is Manager, Events in SVA’s Marketing team. Her role includes the development and production of SVA events and campaign support. Liz brings experience in marketing and event management roles in diverse industries including pharmaceuticals, telecommunications and consumer products.
