“She believed she could, so she did” – R.S. Grey. Those are words that Lisa lives by and has spent her time with clients in working with them on believing in themselves, in the same way, to make their dreams come true. Lisa joined Sound Community in February 2018 as the Director of Outpatient Services and has hit the ground running. “My interest is serving the clients in the community in the best way we know how, as a team and all together. One mission and one purpose- for the people. It is my pleasure to have the opportunity to lead a team of dedicated and passionate providers in this new role, to build greater capacity for more of our community and to provide the best quality of care for our clients.

She received her Bachelor’s in Social Work and Master’s degree at Rutgers University in New Jersey. Lisa holds a Licensed Clinical Social Work CT License and is an Internationally Certified Gambling Counselor II and a Board Approved Clinical Consultant. Lisa is also a member of the United States Army Reserves and is attached to a Combat Stress Unit in Brockton, Massachusetts as a Social Worker. She has spent a lot of her career in community mental health and found this is the place she would like to hang her hat to stay. “I believe this is where you can roll up your sleeves and dive in to help your community and its members. It is a movement for change that I believe everyone needs to participate in to make a difference because it matters and people matter!”

In her spare time, she can be found having fun with her family and going on adventures, going on camping trips to various destinations, doing Cross-fit at 5am, running and playing with her black and yellow labs, and enjoying the sunshine outdoors doing anything active, as often as possible.
