Director of Operations
Laura oversees the general administration and management of Ziva. In addition to maintaining and developing the systems that Ziva uses, she is responsible for customer service, the financials, scheduling, and the day-to-day projects within the company. Hers is typically the first face you see at Ziva, and she is the one to ask questions about anything admin or tech-related. Laura graduated from the University of South Carolina and moved to New York City on a bit of a whim shortly after. When she isn't taking pictures or trying new restaurants, she loves to read.
Ziva Meditator since April 2017.
Head of Marketing
Liz is responsible for spreading Ziva far and wide. If you see Ziva in your inbox, on Facebook, or around the interwebs, it was probably Liz's doing. Liz directs email, content and advertising strategy and loves interacting with Ziva meditators and medi-curious members of our Tribe. Liz is a graduate of the University of Richmond. When she's not helping new folks find Ziva, Liz can be found snuggling with her young daughter or perusing the cheese section at Whole Foods.
