About Elizabeth Lui

I always knew I wanted to have a part in something that made a significant and visible impact, which is how my career began in public relations. From there, I started to build my toolbox of marketing skills working with some of the leading fashion brands. Then ran with my dream and co-owned a wedding planning company.

I jumped into the B2B world at a fast-growing law firm as their first marketer then got hands-on digital experience running everything from multi-channel activity to content and operations strategy.

Now, I’m a Client Marketer at Degreed driving adoption and engagement to help people build the skills they need to invent the future. As a lifelong learner, see what I’m discovering here.





Former Event Operations Volunteer for Portland Women in Tech. Co-founder of Love on Fund, which helped support two working families steady their finances during the devastating August 2016 floods. Oh, and did I mention I’ve maintained crowd control and event operations for llama and alpaca photo ops?

Just for fun

While I’m streaming everything and stuffing my face with a block cheese (just for myself), I’m making globetrotting travel plans, hanging out with and learning about unusual animals, or plotting my next trip to a theme park (any theme park will do).

My hobbies and passions don’t quite cross paths, so I also post to a few special grams.
