Beatriz Maxson, JD

Beatriz moved to Tampa Bay in 2006 after graduating from the Florida State University College of Law. She worked as a criminal prosecutor for the 6th Judicial Circuit for 8 years before shifting her career path to pursue her passion of working with non-profit organizations providing innovative educational programming and resources for children. In 2014 she became the Director of Development at Great Explorations Children’s Museum, responsible for fundraising and grant writing. In 2019 Beatriz was thrilled to join the incredible team at LiFT as their Grant Writer, securing essential funding to further the mission of LiFT Academy and LiFT University. She is continually inspired by the students at LiFT, their exceptional gifts, and their unique perspectives. Beatriz and her husband Kyle have two children and enjoy spending family time boating with their dog Lily, taking road trips, and visiting museums and beaches.
