Lisa and her husband Ben moved to Bainbridge in late 2004, and have two sons who were born and raised here (BHS classes of 2024 and 2027). The inherent natural beauty of the island, and the opportunity it affords for outdoor recreation, suits their family just perfectly.

Lisa has a background in graphic design and publishing, as well as bookkeeping. She also spent her “early mom” years working as a personal trainer and triathlon coach at Island Fitness. She now supports her husband’s strategic philanthropy business, and serves as a board member and coach for Bainbridge Island Ultimate.

Over the years, Lisa has volunteered her time in various capacities, drawing on both her artistic and athletic backgrounds, as well as her fluency with numbers. A child of two educators, she’s been heavily involved with the public schools as her kids pass through, volunteering in countless classrooms, serving on every PTO and in numerous school-related roles, and spending many years as a board member of the Bainbridge Schools Foundation.

Lisa is continually humbled by the creative, collaborative, and generous nature of folks here, and the incredibly vibrant nonprofit sector. She joined the OCFA board in 2023, and is honored to now step in as Interim Executive Director, which allows her to serve multiple wonderful organizations all at once!
