Lisa was drawn to the mission of caring for families in medical crisis and began as a volunteer for There With Care in 2009. For nine years, 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 and performing administrative duties weekly in the Boulder office. Her history with the organization shows the commitment to helping others that she brings to her role as Volunteer Associate.
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 every day routine of doctor appointments, medications and hospital stays.
