Presenter Elizabeth (Liz) Beeler McWhorter, PhD, Outreach Specialist and Presidential Task Force member at LPC, holds advanced degrees in Higher Education and Policy Studies from Cal Poly SLO and Indiana University Bloomington. She represents Career Ed programs in the Arts and Humanities, Advanced Manufacturing and Transportation at LPC; is a representative to Livermore Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Tri Valley Non Profit Alliance; serves as Commissioner on Livermore’s Commission for the Arts advisory body; and volunteers with several nonprofits. She has also worked at Livermore Lab Foundation and the University of California Office of the President. She is very active in Livermore and the Bay Area. She is happy to talk to students, gap-year-takers, skills builders, and 2nd-career seekers about their interests and potential paths at LPC.

Presenter Catherine Alfaro Gomez, Financial Aid Outreach Specialist and Dreamer Resource Liaison holds a bachelor's degree in sociology from the University of California, Santa Cruz and she is currently pursuing her master's degree in Counseling Education at San Jose State University. As a first-generation college graduate, reducing students' barriers and explaining the college process is essential to her. Education made a significant impact on her, and so did financial aid. She enjoys working with diverse communities to assist them with their goals and serve as a resource. She is happy to talk to prospective students about financial aid programs, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), AB 540 status, the California Dream Act Application (CADAA), or the college process.
