(Boston, MA) The New England Foundation for the Arts (NEFA) is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Timmerman has joined the organization as the new Technology & Data Coordinator.

Prior to NEFA, Elizabeth served as the Student Services and Marketing Associate at the Boston Center for Adult Education, where she managed enrollment and customer data analysis in addition to providing technical support to students. In her earlier work in studio administration at Boston Ballet School, Elizabeth was involved in all aspects of operations, including maintaining records, coordination of registration, scheduling, training new staff, and recommending process changes to improve efficiency and accuracy. During the School’s summer program, Elizabeth served as the medical liaison, documenting procedures, scheduling appointments, and managing referrals and communications, both internal and external.

Elizabeth remains involved in dance and movement around the Greater Boston area, as a student at both Boston Ballet and Esh Circus Arts; she also continues to volunteer her time and skills for both the Boston Intergenerational Dance Advocates in Cambridge, and the Society for Creative Anachronism’s local chapter in eastern MA. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and currently resides in Medford, MA.

“Elizabeth’s experience and skill set, particularly in data management and technical support, as well as her enthusiasm for process and efficiency, make her a great fit for NEFA and the position,” said NEFA technology and data director, Abby Southwell. “We are excited to have her on board.”
