Executive Assistant/Office Manager
Lisa’s association with ACT began at the age of five when she attended Opportunity Kindergarten. After graduating from Lourdes College with a degree in Management in 1992, she worked a few secretarial jobs in the for-profit sector but always knew something important was missing.
In 2001, a want ad caught her eye. It contained the line: “Personal experience with a disability preferred.” After years of showing up for interviews only to find the office on the third floor of a building with no elevator, what a relief it was to see these words. She had not been involved with Ability Center programming since her early teens but walking in the front door she knew she was home.
Lisa adds, “Though my position is purely administrative I know that, by keeping this office running smoothly, I am making a difference for all people with disabilities.”
