Junior Achievement of the Ocoee Region
Liz Mathurin-Williams hails from Twin City, also known as St. Croix U.S Virgin Islands. As a transplant, Liz has taken the opportunity to learn of the differences in culture and how those differences can help in the development of our community. A mother of three, she holds an Associate’s Degree in Business Management from Cleveland State Community College and a Bachelors in Business Administration with a concentration in Healthcare Administration from Tennessee Wesleyan University. She is currently pursuing an MBA from TWU.
Liz, a former educator, started her career on the island of her heritage, St. Lucia. There she held various positions to include executive secretary, cultural liaison and elementary school teacher. These positions also granted her the opportunity to work with individuals from other OCES countries. When she returned to St. Croix, Liz continued her teaching career and chaired the fundraising committee as well as spear-headed several school and community programs such as the Reading and Interscholastic Bowl.
Liz was appointed to the position of JA Programs Manager in August 2018. In this position, Liz is responsible for delivering high quality and timely programs forced on financial literacy, workforce readiness and entrepreneurship to students and families of the Ocoee region. The pursuit of a technical or academic education is also stressed to students as a means of self and community development. Creating new and continued volunteer opportunities with community members, businesses and institutions of higher learning within our coverage area is also of great importance to Mrs. Mathurin-Williams.
