Sound Team

Liga Mezaraups

Liga Mezaraups joined Sound’s Board of Directors in September 2023 and is a member of Sound’s Quality Committee. She was drawn to Sound’s mission and specifically, to its focus on improving the lives of our community’s most vulnerable individuals. One of her guiding principles is to treat each human with dignity, recognizing their innate value, and often not knowing their unique struggles and challenges.

A Registered Nurse by training, Mezaraups is a recently retired health services executive with 30+ years’ experience. Most recently, she served as an Associate Vice President at Providence, responsible for the 7-state system’s Acute Care Clinical Care Performance. She served as the Chief Nursing Officer at Providence Everett, a 630-bed acute care hospital with one of the largest and busiest Emergency Departments in the state. She has held a variety of leadership roles at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle.

Mezaraups holds a bachelor’s degree of Science in Nursing from Georgetown University and a master’s degree in healthcare administration from the University of Washington. Born and raised outside Philadelphia, Mezaraups relocated to Seattle in 2004, following 17 years in Southern California.

She is the fourth daughter of proud Latvian immigrants. Her Latvian cultural identity was an influential force in her life, as were her two primary passions – playing the violin and sports. Track and field, rock climbing, strength training, cycling, mountain biking, and skiing have been central in her life.

Mezaraups is the incredibly proud and grateful mom to a 28-year-old daughter, who is her greatest inspiration. She feels beyond fortunate to have two bright, witty, talented, and kind sons who entered her life along with her wonderful husband and adventure partner.
