Adoption

Lisa has been a child advocate for many years, and considers adoption to be an extension of that advocacy. She believes that every child should have a safe, loving and happy home. Whether it is foster care adoptions, private agency adoptions, or private individuals adopting, Lisa believes that one person can make a difference in the world, and building families is one of the ways to make that difference.

Training

With a background as both a teacher and an attorney, Lisa’s mission is to educate individuals, communities, institutions and law enforcement on how to recognize and report abuse. 

Whether it is through webinars or a series of in-person training sessions, Lisa builds a curriculum emphasizing awareness and encouraging action.  The sessions are not iterations of government-issued handbooks.  Instead, Lisa takes her years of experience in the courtroom, classroom and the community to encourage a shift in how we recognize abuse, discrimination and institutional failures. She helps create a culture in which people are not just required but eager to do the right thing.
