About Me

Elizabeth "Liz" Alf earned a B.A. in Neuroscience and Behavior, summa cum laude, from Columbia University - Barnard College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She decided to pursue her passion for the sciences and teaching others by joining Teach For America. She also earned a Masters of Teaching in Secondary Science at Pace University. Throughout her nine years of teaching high school science in various cities around the country, Liz truly enjoyed certain aspects of being an educator. She loved the ability to form positive relationships with her students and to help them grow the key skills they would need for their life in college and beyond.

As she looked to transition out of the classroom, Liz wanted to be able to put these skills to use in her new career. Complementing her passion for helping others, Liz brings to Clerestory proven organizational, analytical and problem solving skills. She has been enjoying the opportunity to help her father continue realizing his vision of providing people with the ability to improve their lives through financial education and working each year to realize their life and financial goals. Liz completed the Financial Planning core course work through both DePaul University and Kaplan University. She then sat for and passed the CFP® Certification Examination in March 2017. She has now completed three years of experience and received her CFP® mark as of October 2018, which is the financial planning industry's most widely recognized professional designation.

Liz lives in St. Paul, MN with her husband Scott, sons Lucas and Peter, and their dog Jack. They enjoy taking advantage of all the Twin Cities has to offer- talking walks by the river, exploring fun places to eat and spending family time together.
