Liz Taber

Director of Development

Liz returned home to Newport, RI from Boston College with a degree in math and computer science to begin working on nuclear submarines. After missing Boston and in search of her passion, she went to Harvard University’s Development Office to design fundraising systems, writing applications for phonathons and university-wide capital campaigns while supporting the nine schools, the Recording Secretary, and the Alumni Records Offices.

Liz later launched Auditional Inc, focusing on Y2K readiness efforts at Boston area firms. She next joined a medtech start-up in Cambridge, MA developing HIPAA-compliant applications, which would lPO three years later as WebMD. After WedMD, Liz worked to successfully launch Softheon from NYU’s tech incubator on the Stonybrook campus to provide enterprise content management applications to Fortune 500s.

Returning to Newport to rest her left brain, Liz’s focus shifted away from the tech world to the natural beauty around her. As a Broker/Manager with Sotheby’s International Realty, Liz  eagerly reconnected with local friends, enjoying time for fellowship with members of the Aquidneck Island Land Trust, Newport Garden Club and the New York Yacht Club. She was quickly recruited for cause-based fundraising, and in 2014 Liz successfully led a grass-roots political campaign to halt casino developers in Newport. Recently she has been a strategic consultant to reimagine, rebrand and relaunch NJ-based telecommunication firm pdvWireless as Anterix, which achieved FCC approval for the first nationwide private LTE network in May 2020.
