Alumni Spotlight: Liz Mosbach ’16

Hi there! My name is Liz Mosbach and I’m a 2016 MMU alum. I graduated with a Bachelor of Administration in Marketing and a Public Relations minor. Since graduating from Mount Mercy, I’ve moved to Des Moines, Iowa, where I work at Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield in their Marketing & Communications department.

A bit more that’s happened to me post-graduation:

  • I got engaged to the most wonderful man who I met while attending MMU.
  • I completed my first 10K, 20K, half marathon and marathon.
  • I caught the travel bug.
  • My fiancé and I adopted the cutest little fur baby named Barrington ... and he just so happens to be on this year’s Animal Planet Puppy Bowl!

What first brought me to MMU was running! I ran on the cross country and track teams and absolutely loved every second of it. Being part of these teams brought me such great friends and an amazing support system.

Running for MMU taught me so much more than just hard work and dedication, though. It showed me what it means to be part of a team, family, and a community! I was so proud to wear Mount Mercy across my chest every single race. I can’t thank my teammates and coaches enough for everything they did for me throughout my four years as a Mustang.

Like I mentioned earlier, I’ve kept running and just recently ran my first marathon finishing with a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon!

The Thanksgiving Dress Dinner was always my favorite tradition at MMU.

MMU taught me such important values like giving back to your community and what it means to volunteer. I’m honored to work for a company that shares some of those same values.

As I mentioned, I work for Wellmark! Whether it’s sponsoring the Grand Blue Mile, working with the Food Bank of Iowa, or volunteering throughout our community, I work with some pretty great people who do amazing things.
