Lisa oversees and coordinates safe house logistics and provides evening crisis management and programming.
After growing up in a divorced home, often times struggling to have the basic necessities, Lisa decided at a young age she needed a plan to not repeat this cycle. Upon completing graduation, Lisa joined the military and began a nine year career with the United States Army. After leaving the military, she worked in the medical field for fifteen years with various specialties where she learned about compassion and caring for others.
Lisa wanted to find a way to serve her community so she began volunteering with local outreach organizations. She served with The Journey Home providing meals for the homeless. There she learned she didn’t want to just serve a meal to someone, she wanted to get to know them. During this same time, she came across a documentary on PBS called “A Path Appears,” which addressed human trafficking in Nashville. She immediately became interested in this cause and sought out a local ministry that dealt with human trafficking. She volunteered with Last Call 4 Grace and was certified in Darkness to Light (CSEC) training. All of her volunteering experience, combined with her military and healthcare experience, has helped prepare her for her position with ESTN.
In her spare time, Lisa enjoys visiting her daughter in Memphis, working out, and being outdoors. She is also truly blessed to be surrounded by such a strong, loving community of friends that support her in every way.
