Lisa was drawn to the mission of caring for families in medical crisis and began as a volunteer for There With Care in 2009. Since joining the team, she has supported the organization by sorting donations with her daughter in the warehouse, entering data for the Holiday Cares Program, helping out at events, performing weekly administrative duties and, more recently, becoming a part of the Marketing and Communications team supporting strategy, project management and social media.
Supporting children and families has always been important to Lisa. Prior to joining There With Care, Lisa worked at the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Oregon, where she granted the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses. Coordinating with volunteers across the state, she provided magical experiences for families who needed a break from the everyday routine of doctor appointments, medications and hospital stays.
