Liz Agboola is CEO of Moses Behavioral Care (MBC), a group of community-based mental health facilities offering 24-hour, long-term care for the serious mental illness (SMI) population. These efforts are motivated by her promise to uphold mental health as a critical part of overall wellness, including preventive services to the community while offering integrated care and treatment for those who require assistance with daily living.

Prior to establishing MBC, she founded Senior Placement Services (SPS), an assistance program in Phoenix that provides housing resources for vulnerable veterans and homeless individuals who are unable to live independently due to medical or mental health conditions, with her parents and siblings. It was here she began her work in public service. For nearly 10 years she spearheaded community efforts ensuring suitable housing was available for the disenfranchised, homeless veterans and the elderly. She strengthened the company's business and corporate citizenship with key partnerships (local shelters, mental health clinics, Veteran’s Administration homeless centers) and various civic and community-based organizations.

Her career ultimately began two decades ago in the private sector in learning and development. She served in various senior leadership roles with Bank of America and Director of Learning and Development with Gannett. Liz brings a strong business and health care background paired with a servant’s heart to lead the community in advocacy and ultimately through legislation. She holds a Master’s in Education and Masters of Business Administration.

Liz currently sits on the board of Valleywise Health Foundation and Dignity Health Hospital. She formed Valleywise’s program Emerging Leaders, which pairs diverse young professionals with executives for one-year mentorships, and she was handpicked to join the American Heart Association's committee, where she works to raise awareness and support AHA's life-changing breakthroughs.
