Lisa spent the first 15 years of her professional career in juvenile justice and the next 25 years in education policy and politics. Her first job out of college was working as a VISTA volunteer in a maximum-security correctional facility, and she finished up as the WA state Director of Democrats for Education Reform. In between, Lisa staffed cross country wagon trains and wilderness camps for adjudicated youth, worked as a juvenile court public defender, trained AmeriCorps volunteers, co-founded education advocacy organizations, sponsored statewide education initiatives, and worked on numerous city and state education campaigns. Happily retired, Lisa volunteers on Georgia’s Voter Protection Hotline, and she spends as much time as possible outside with friends and family hiking, kayaking, and cross-country skiing.
