Helping people is just in Liz Agboola’s nature and she has nearly 10 years of experience working with, and advocating for, the serious mental illness (SMI) population, and has successfully spearheaded community efforts to ensure the availability of suitable housing for the disenfranchised, homeless, elderly, and veteran community. Liz currently holds the position of CEO for three Valley organizations she founded with her parents and siblings: Senior Placement Services (SPS), an assistance program in Phoenix that provides housing resources for vulnerable veterans and homeless individuals who are unable to live independently due to medical or mental health conditions; Moses Behavioral Care (MBC), a mental health facility in Phoenix offering 24-hour, long-term care for the SMI population; and FreshStart, a health care staffing, recruiting, and training agency formed to meet the increased demand for highly qualified health care professionals. Liz is on the board of Valleywise Health Foundation and Dignity Health Hospital. She formed Valleywise’s program Emerging Leaders, which pairs diverse young professionals with executives for one-year mentorships, and she was handpicked to join the American Heart Association's committee, where she works to raise awareness and support AHA's life-changing breakthroughs. Agboola holds a masters in both Business and Education from Old Dominion University and she works diligently, with her family, to uphold mental health as a critical part of overall wellness.
