Featured Speaker

Elizabeth Valenzuela Banker
CEO, Shore Solutions

Liz joined the US Navy when she was 18 and served five years aboard the destroyer USS Howard (DDG83), earning a Navy Achievement Medal. After leaving the Navy, she worked in government sales, sales management, and operations before coming to Shore Solutions in 2012, where she became its VP of Operations.  Three years later, prior ownership believed the company was unsuccessful and could not agree on a way forward.  As they decided to part ways, Liz had the opportunity to purchase the company and became the sole owner and CEO just a few months after her 29th birthday.  As CEO, she executed a complete turnaround of Shore, leading the company to its first-ever profitability, and transforming the company’s vision, values and morale.  Shore’s sales doubled in three years closing out 2018 with 16 million in revenue. Liz and Shore have also received over 25 awards and recognitions over the past 3 years from organizations like the US Small Business Administration, San Diego Magazine, San Diego Business Journal and Inc. Magazine. When she is not working, she spends the rest of her time with her shipmate and now husband, Robert Banker and their two wonderful children, Ava who is 3 and Bobby who is 1.

In this program, Elizabeth will share insight on living a life of courage, compassion, and authenticity.
