Liz Woods, Dean of Admissions

Liz WoodsI joined the ACHS team in February 2020. I have a B.S. in Communication Studies from the University of Kansas and an M.A. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. I have 20 years of experience in a variety of industries but found higher education six years ago and immediately fell in love. I look forward to bringing curiosity and passion for helping students to the ACHS admissions team. I traded the brutal Chicago winters for the rainy PNW and couldn’t be happier! I spend my free time exploring Portland’s neighborhoods, watching/playing sports, and day trips to the coast.
