Lisa is the Co-Executive Director of the Hinton Friendship Centre, as well as serving as the Program Director for Mamowichihitowin and West Yellowhead Domestic Violence Program. Giving back to the community in this way, for Lisa, is an honour and a privilege. Similarly, she believes the United Way gives back to her community, and provides important funding to area organizations that need it. Her heroes are her mother and grandmother, both of which taught her the value of working for her community and the impact women can have. Her favourite fictional character is Wolverine, for obvious reasons; He’s Wolverine.
