Elizabeth (Liz) Dahlen
Interim Director of Sales & Marketing
Liz had many successful years in broadcast television management and then in Chamber of Commerce business development, but following a time of family crisis, she was determined to get into a field that would be a “work of heart.” Liz ultimately made the later in life career move to senior housing. She “learned the ropes” by opening a brand new community, and found a real happiness working alongside seniors and their families as they transition to the next step in their life journey. With a passion for a high quality of service for seniors, she quickly realized that the best care is more consistently provided in a faith-based nonprofit organization. This change has taken her job satisfaction to a new level! Liz has been with Walker Methodist as the Shared Services Director of Sales since 2017. In this role, she supports all the Walker Methodist communities in their marketing and leasing efforts.
Liz started very young doing volunteer work, and has consistently tried to be involved throughout the years. She started by regularly visiting a neighborhood nursing home when she was 12. As a teen, she started an active volunteer life in her church and as an adult she served multiple board terms for organizations ranging from the Chamber of Commerce, United Way, American Heart Association, Exchange Club, Interfaith Hospitality Network, and several others. Today, Liz still volunteers at her church, providing music. She also is a community education speaker for the Alzheimer’s Association.
