Happy New Rotary Year!   I am honored and humbled to step into the big shoes of those of you who have graciously served before me.  Wayne, thank you for everything you have done for our club this past year.  Your hard work, dedication, and mentorship are inspirational.  I look forward to continuing to learn and grow as we embark on a new year.  I am so blessed to be surrounded by such a tremendous group of people and am grateful for all of you!  

Rotary International has appropriately chosen “Rotary Opens Opportunities” as our theme for 2020-2021.   In a time of great challenge as we face a pandemic and tensions within our communities, we also have opportunities to learn, grow, and serve.    I am proud to be part of the Shawnee Mission Rotary Club and look forward to a terrific year together!

Lisa was born in Ames, Iowa and spent her childhood in the suburbs of Des Moines. She graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls and immediately moved to Arizona to thaw out (It was COLD up there! :-)). Lisa loves spending time with her parents as well as with her brothers and their families. She has an adopted furball named Kiwi who she believes is secretly a puppy zipped up in a catsuit. Kiwi plays fetch and follows Lisa everywhere- the best of both worlds! Lisa adores all animals and feels very fortunate to have a low maintenance pet.
 
Lisa is an Audiologist with Associated Audiologists, Inc. Lisa loves to be active! Her hobbies include hiking, biking, and anything active and outdoors in warm sunny weather. Lisa's favorite place for vacation is either at the beach or somewhere that she can hike. At karaoke night, you will find Lisa belting out Bon Jovi's "It's My Life". Her favorite meal is grandma's homemade Italian. Lisa's chosen super-power would be the ability to be invisible (maybe to be able to sneak some extra helpings of grandma's food- yumm!).
