July 29th, 2021

We are pleased to introduce Liv O’Keeffe, who recently joined our team to serve as Director of Communications. As a member of the senior management team, Liv will oversee communications and our Conference and Education Center, and will advance policy for Sierra Health Foundation and The Center.

Liv brings more than 20 years of experience in communications, organizational strategy and public policy, working in both the environmental and health care spaces. Most recently, she served as the Senior Director of Public Affairs for the California Native Plant Society, where her leadership included integrated communications and advocacy campaigns for wildfire response, biodiversity protection and equitable access to nature. Prior to her time in the conservation community, she served as a strategic leader in digital marketing, content strategy and wellness initiatives for Sutter Health.

Liv says her new role at Sierra Health Foundation and The Center brings together a career’s worth of passion for the things that matter most to her, both personally and professionally. “I can’t imagine a more effective organization through which to champion equity and well-being at a time when it’s needed most,” Liv said.
