Lisa’s first memory of flowers is peering at the neighbor’s hyacinths growing against her backyard fence as a small child in Brooklyn, NY. From there, she moved to Long Island, then Manhattan and Boston, and finally to Temple, NH, where she raised two daughters and cared for an array of beloved pets. In Temple, her love and appreciation for nature grew exponentially. As she learned about biodiversity, she turned as much of her lawn into flower gardens as she could manage!
Lisa holds a master’s degree in social work, and worked with disadvantaged populations earlier in her career. After writing a non-fiction book about homeless women, she shifted her focus to communications and fundraising. She is now delighted to champion the Harris Center’s work, so critically needed in today’s world.
