To her friends and family, Elizabeth Dunn has played many roles in life—wife, mother, church council leader, real estate agent and more. But one of her favorite parts is that of a volunteer. In fact, Elizabeth Dunn has volunteered with several Birmingham organizations, from the Junior League of Birmingham to Heart Gallery Alabama and everywhere in-between. We spoke with Elizabeth to learn more about her volunteer work—here’s what we found out.

Raised in the suburbs of Birmingham, Elizabeth Dunn has called The Magic City home for most of her life. That means she’s incredibly familiar with each of Birmingham’s unique neighborhoods, one-of-a-kind restaurants, exceptional parks and so much more. And for the past six years, Elizabeth has had her real estate license and has enjoyed helping her clients find their dream home in the city.

In addition to her work, volunteerism has been a high priority for Elizabeth throughout her life. She’s worked with a number of local schools and non-profit organizations, including:

How did you get starting volunteering?

Elizabeth: “When my children were young, I started volunteering as a way to give back. I volunteered with the Junior League of Birmingham, the Mountain Brook City Schools and our church, Canterbury United Methodist. Then, as my children got older and I had more free time, I started volunteering with other organizations in my life.”

What does volunteering mean to you?

Elizabeth: “I think when you’re passionate about a certain group, committee or service organization, it’s very rewarding to volunteer or fundraise for them. For instance, I volunteered on the school board at my children’s school for ten years because I think it’s important to give back in some way to your children’s schools. I wouldn’t consider myself a fundraiser, but I enjoy being an ambassador for these organizations.”

Which organizations are you currently involved in?

Elizabeth: “I currently serve on the board of trustees for Birmingham-Southern College, at my church, Canterbury United Methodist and I support Heart Gallery Alabama, which helps find adoptive families for Alabama’s foster children. I’ve been employed by Heart Gallery Alabama and served on their Board of Directors, and I still support the organization and believe in the mission they serve.”

When she’s not out volunteering or helping home-buyers, Elizabeth can be found spending time with her husband Jack and her three children—Jay, Cole and Adelaide.

Helping Birmingham Residents Find Their Dream Homes

In addition to her volunteer work, Elizabeth spends her time helping prospective home-buyers find their next home in one of Birmingham’s wonderful neighborhoods. Elizabeth has been a real estate agent for six years, and recently joined the team at LAH Real Estate—and she couldn’t be happier.

“I’ve been with LAH Real Estate for almost a year, and I’ve really enjoyed my time here. Everyone I’ve met is so supportive, kind and truly works as a team—it’s really like a family.”
