Lisa is a recent Clemson University graduate who has a real passion for the caring and helping of others. While working at a Visiting Nurse Association in college, Lisa gained a true passion for the medical field. Although she ideally would have liked to pursue a career in nursing, her sensitive stomach has held her from such an opportunity. After obtaining a BS in Marketing, Lisa has spent much of her timing working as an SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Specialist at an internet marketing firm in Boston. She is very excited to embark on a new career in the health field. Lisa hopes in her new position as Community Leader, she will have the opportunity to use her marketing skills to help educate and engage the health activist community.
