Lisa - Secretary of the Board
Lisa was born and raised in the US midwest but has always had a passion for Italy. She and her husband, Matt, enjoy traveling the world. They visited Verona for the first time Summer of 2016 and immediately fell in love with the people and the city. She has also spent time in London, France, Czech Republic, Poland, Haiti, Israel and the Caribbean.
Lisa also has a passion for students that was ignited in Knoxville, Tennessee where she was a mentor in schools and a small group leader at church. Her passion expanded into Haiti, where she founded a non-profit to bring hot lunches to schools in Port-Au-Prince, and into Verona, Italy with ultimateXchange.
Lisa lives with her husband Matt and 3 children Nathan, Annalise, and Charlotte in Knoxville, Tennessee. Their 20 year marriage has taken them to quite a few cities, living in Chicago, Nashville, Minneapolis, Seattle, and Phoenix. She loves her job and volunteers in the community quite a bit so their plan is to stay in Knoxville until all 3 children graduate high school. And then who knows - maybe retirement in Verona.
