Lizzie Dunbar

Lizzie brings ten years of advertising and digital marketing strategy to National Life’s brand team from a diverse spectrum of agency experience in Boston, Denver and Vermont. As a Brand Manager, she works to seamlessly align our brand presence across the enterprise with strategic and data driven approaches infused with energy.

Outside of the office, Lizzie is the Junior Varsity tennis coach for Stowe High School and also sits on the board for MENTOR Vermont. For the past three years, she has spent her Friday mornings mentoring an elementary student in her local community.

From campfire cuisine to exploring new restaurants, Lizzie has an insatiable appetite for both travel and culinary adventures. She lives for outdoor experiences and loves sharing them with her partner Greg, family, and close friends.

When she isn’t out blazing a trail in the great outdoors, it’s common to find her writing letters via snail mail, cranking the tunes of her vinyl collection, paging through a hardcover biography, or fussing through the NYT’s Sunday crossword.

In January 2021, as Kamala Harris took the oath of office, another glass ceiling was shattered in our country’s history. As the first Woman, first Black American and first South Asian America to be Vice President of the United States, Kamala has lived empowered by the words her late mother, Shyamala Gopalan imparted on her as a young girl:

“Kamala, you may be the first to do many things, but make sure you are not the last.”

If we lean into a theme for Women’s History Month this year, perhaps we can take note from Gopalan’s imparted wisdom. As a collective of Servant Leaders, let’s challenge each other to continue the work to pave a way for progress and help foster a path for others to do the same.
