Liz Codina

Community Investment Officer
Youth Pathways to Success


As a Community Investment Officer, I am dedicated to PKF’s statewide education initiatives in the areas of cradle to career alignment and post-secondary access and success. I also have the pleasure of supporting community vitality initiatives in the Omaha metropolitan area and work closely with community partners to build the capacity of the nonprofit sector locally.

I grew up in Omaha and attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) where I earned my Bachelor of Science degree with majors in Political Science, Foreign and National Security Affairs, and Latin/Latino American Studies. I am a nationally recognized journalist with a decade of experience in a variety of nonprofit management roles and I use this experience to support community-driven solutions.

I am a 2019 Hispanics in Philanthropy Líderes Fellow and 2019 Ten Outstanding Young Omahans (TOYO) recipient. I love being involved and currently serve in leadership positions for NAM’s Nonprofit Executive Institute (NEI), Connecting Young Nebraskans (CYN), and Metro Young Latino Professionals Association (MYLPA). My public service is centered around supporting marginalized communities and creating access to opportunity.
