Lisa is looking forward to connecting with the community of support who partner with Treehouse every day so kids experience childhood, graduate from high school and ultimately launch successfully into adulthood.
When asked about starting as the CEO in these uncertain times, Lisa said:
Lisa has a bachelor’s degree in Political Science & Art from Wellesley College and a doctorate in Education from UCLA. In addition, she’s on the board at Bellevue College and has served on boards at The Threshold Group, The Seattle Chamber, The Statewide Poverty Action Network and Asian Counseling & Referral Services.
She enjoys music, playing mahjong with her son Benjamin and spending time on the ski slopes of the western U.S. She also has an adorable dog named Panda.
We are excited about this news and look forward to the impact Treehouse will continue to make.
Giving Foster Kids a Childhood and a Future
Treehouse envisions – and strives to create – a world where every child that has experienced foster care has the opportunities and support they need to pursue their dreams and launch successfully into adulthood.
Treehouse is dedicated to closing the achievement gap between youth in foster care and their peers forever. By providing students with the academic and other essential support that all kids need to succeed, they become more self-determined and invested in their education than ever before. And despite the challenges students face in foster care, their graduation rates are on the rise. Learn more about Treehouse here: https://www.treehouseforkids.org
