Elizabeth Cleary is the Director of Operations and Community Programs at The Chamber of St. Matthews. In 2020, Elizabeth dug in and got creative in how the Chamber shared information and created connection opportunities for St. Matthews businesses. Elizabeth adapted the Chamber’s Street Festival into a virtual music and vending fair that she designed as well as executed day of. She converted Halloween in Brown Park to a drive-thru trick-or-treating event that made the holiday special and safe for over 1,500 kids. Outside of work, Elizabeth shows her Shar-Pei in local and regional dog shows and also fosters animals from rescue groups. Reading Elizabeth’s unique and highly personable application, the universal feeling was, “Wow! This is someone we want to meet!”
