The Alliance is pleased to welcome two new members to our Board of Directors!

Elizabeth Abdoo is the Senior Legal Advisor at Host Hotels and Resorts, where she’s been working for over 18 years. Prior to Host Hotels, she was the Senior Vice President and Assistant General Counsel at Orbital Sciences Corporation (Northrop Grumman Innovative System). She brings over 30 years of diverse and progressive experience delivering strategic legal and business advice and solutions. She hopes to use her experience to assist the Alliance in implementing our mission and objectives.

Lisa Ausherman’s community service, love for people, and the environment have been a driving factor in her life. Her current business, Amazing Space Design, LLC focuses on integrating her unique style of interior design with her passion and love of horticulture to create intimate residential garden rooms and artful commercial spaces. She earned a Master’s certificate in Landscape Design from The George Washington University, her undergraduate degree from James Madison University in Fine Art and Interior Design, and was certified as a Professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). As Co-Founder of the Ausherman Family Foundation in 2006, she worked diligently in engaging and supporting Non-profit organizations in Frederick County and leading philanthropic efforts in the community.

The Alliance is thrilled to be adding Elizabeth’s and Lisa’s impressive skill sets to our Board!
