Lisa was elected to Arvada City Council in November 2021 with a goal of building stronger connections and engagement between residents and the City of Arvada. Her focus has been on housing and multi-modal transportation.  In her first year, her proudest accomplishment was establishing a formal housing committee in 2022.

Lisa previously worked for Team Rubicon, a veteran disaster response organization that deploys people to crisis and emergencies across the globe. She has been working and volunteering in the disaster response space for almost a decade, which included COVID response in Arvada where she served on the Arvada Chamber Resiliency Task Force.

Lisa graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelors Degree in Social Work. Her Master’s Degree is in Macro Social Work and Policy from Boston College. She currently takes Spanish classes at Red Rocks Community College in hopes to continue her ability to connect with residents of all cultural backgrounds.

After their many years serving in the Air Force and Army, Lisa and Eli are excited to call Arvada home, and they are expecting their first child in August 2023.
