Elizabeth Brach, Ph.D. and her husband Jose Marcal moved to Lexington in 1983 and have had 4 children go through the Lexington Public Schools, for all or part of their educations. Elizabeth is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and holds a Ph.D. in Child Development from Tufts University.
Following years of clinical practice, she started her own company as a federally certified woman owned small business, Brach Evaluation and Consulting, LLC. She worked as a grant-writer, project developer, and evaluation consultant to universities and non-profits to support federal or state reporting requirements on their funded projects. Most projects that she worked with addressed educational equity issues relating to gender, race, and ethnicity in school districts and state educational agencies. Clients also included federally funded magnet schools, statewide mentoring initiatives, and family support programs.
Serving on the Outreach Committee for the past 3 years has been a wonderful opportunity to learn about and support local initiatives that benefit the Lexington Community.
