Kind, ambitious, fun. These are only a fraction of qualities that distinguish Liv. She’s on another level when it comes to helping others, fostered by a love for teamwork and a deep-seated curiosity for the world that rooted in childhood after moving from Luxembourg to the U.K. She naturally earned a degree in human geography and now plays to these strengths as senior associate at Acertitude. Even in her free time, she gives as a volunteer for wildlife organizations near to her heart: The Wilderness Foundation and Save The Rhino.
There can be no greater gift than that of giving one’s time and energy to help others without expecting anything in return. Nelson Mandela
