Lisa is a recognized community leader with relationships both in and outside the Senior Fellow Network that will be key to advancing our goal of strengthening and leveraging the network to meet the numerous challenges facing Oregon now and in the future.
Lisa grew up in Salem and has a broad range of professional and volunteer leadership experience in addition to being a champion of equity and inclusion policies and practices. She was a successful small business entrepreneur for 10 years as founder and owner of Cupcake Jones Bakery, was Director of Development at Latino Network and most recently Deputy Director at Our House. Her board leadership includes President of the City Club of Portland, Travel Portland and the Oregon Health Authority’s Statewide Policy Board. Like many of us, Lisa’s ALF experience was transformational personally and professionally, and was the catalyst for her to reconnect with her Native American heritage.
