Lisa was born and raised in the Lower Mainland. She attended a small Christian school in

Maple Ridge which gave her an appreciation for small, intimate learning environments. From there, Lisa pursued a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology with a concentration in Research at the University of Fraser Valley (UFV) in Abbotsford. This is where Lisa developed greater esteem for understanding why things are the way that they are. Through studying society and its fractures as an undergrad, Lisa grew in her understanding of God’s character and His heart for humanity.

In 2016, Lisa began working at TWU and explored a variety of roles. From working in administrative support to being a front desk receptionist, and now serving as a resident director of Douglas hall. For Lisa, one of the most rewarding opportunities that her role affords her is the chance to build intentional relationships with students who desire to strengthen their leadership skills and deepen their understanding of their identity in God. Lisa serves passionately and gracefully, believing that the joy of mentoring and encouraging students as they embrace all that life has in store for them will never feel anything less than a privilege.  

Currently, Lisa is working towards a Masters in family therapy at ACTS as she continues to seek and discover what God has next for her life.
