Lisa’s Aggie heritage, community roots, and love and commitment for the future of the Brazos Valley serve as a motivating force to make life better for all who live here. As a result, Lisa works tirelessly behind the scenes and in so many supportive ways to “connect the dots” to make sure that if work at any of the many organizations she is engaged with a connecting thread in any of its projects, then she can find it and make it work together. Her development experience tells her that by working together, we can make a bigger impact AND have more fun! As a result, Lisa has been involved and touched numerous community organizations and nonprofits including the Woman’s Club, Coach Blair Charities, Fun for All Playground, Bryan/College Station Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors [formerly Blazers], Leadership Brazos, Life Member of Bryan/College Station Chamber of Commerce, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, St. Joseph Hospital Foundation Fundraiser Cajun Primer/Bayou Bash, Junior League, American Cancer Society, Brazos County A&M Club, Brazos Valley Tailgaters, Ronald McDonald House Charities, First Baptist Church and College Station Little League and Soccer Club.
