Our team is built upon a system of relentlessness. We are a global non-profit organization that is undaunted by the hopes and plans our team hold in front of us. We deem it our privilege to empower a vast amount of communities and chase after their dreams, and ours, together.
He‘s a dreamer. Whether in real life or his sleep, Matt constantly has a dream upon his big heart. He is the President of enliven, husband to Amanda, father to Julia and Elsa, Director for Boston Scientific. He harnesses the gift of boldness when dreaming, undaunted by any task. He has the talent to execute a plan seamlessly, making the process of taking a dream and making it a reality look easy. He motivates everyone around him all the while driving home amazing results.
She‘s a server and a nurse, thriving in the medical field. Lori is a co-founder of enliven, wife to James and mother to our tiniest enliven team member, Ethan. Lori acts as the mother on each enliven trip; protecting us with mosquito nets, always ready with a bottle of water or the right medicine, bug spray, or sunscreen. Lori has a way with words. She speaks gently and lovingly, just as a mother would, and uses that gift to love people uniquely and seamlessly.
He’s a thinker, and boy does he think BIG. He’s a co-founder of enliven and works with a grandiose end in mind. He helps steer our enliven dreams and keeps the big picture in mind, working backwards to get surprisingly compelling results. James is a senior VP in wealth management at UBS. In his free time; James is known to keep a notebook on him always, constantly writing down new ideas. You can find him playing golf in his free time, giggling and wrestling with his son and traveling with his family.
She‘s a community builder. People make her tick. She is a co-founder as well as an educator. She is happiest when surrounded by those she loves tirelessly; our community. Amanda leads by organizing in a way that only she can intuit, a beauty only observed by stepping back and taking in a community that is not only growing but thriving. In enliven, she takes pride in keeping the group productive while keeping all our hearts and minds set upon the true reason we started enliven: relationships.

He is a doer. Give Ben a task and he will thoroughly and efficiently get it done. He is a lawyer, entrepreneur, social advocate, and an amazing father! He makes sure all our “i’s” are dotted and “t’s” are crossed. He and his wife, Haley, have 3 children and run and operate their own dental temping agency, Dental Experts. Ben currently works at Boston Scientific gaining regulatory approval for life-saving medical devices. On any given day Ben can be found doing the books for one of his 3 organizations, taking his family hiking in the Black Hills, coaching a soccer game, or remodeling a deck with friends. He doesn’t stop!
Quite simply, we believe that people have incredible worth. At some point we got tired of seeing social justice, missions, and fundraisers falling short in creating lasting growth in systemic poverty. Our team believes that cultivating generosity means actually disciplining margin into our time, finances, and relationships so that we can simply give more. This deep conviction fuels everything we do.
