Born and raised in Victoria, Lisa has a deep love for the city, the people in it and the will to build a bright future for EVERYONE.
As a child raised in poverty, Lisa overcame many challenges in life with help from others, including services funded by UWSVI. That’s why Lisa is compelled to volunteer with UWSVI – she passionately shares the belief that ALL people deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Lisa is a consultant and experienced visual facilitator who helps executive teams and boards around the globe to mine their diverse perspectives, align on a desired future and focus on strategic action. She is also a certified mediator who uses visual communication to make the process of resolving disputes more effective.
Lisa earned a B.Ed from UVic and before becoming a Mom worked for 3e Training Inc. delivering Financial Management Curriculum to the government of BC. In those days, she was volunteering on the board of the Single Parent Resource Center on the Board of Directors, and the International Forum of Visual Practitioners.
Lisa believes that post-pandemic, community needs have never been greater and that they can be addressed only through the power of working together. That’s why Lisa encourages you to join UWSVI’s amazing community of dedicated volunteers and donors. Get involved with the United Way movement – volunteer your skills, become a donor, join a committee and experience the infectious hopefulness for the future that happens when we come together in a ‘united way.’
