Lisa will be truly missed. She always had a positive attitude. Lisa was always willing to go the extra mile to help out whenever I had a question or needed assistance.

Lisa was always one of my most dependable coworkers. I always knew she would get me, and we had many a shared data nerd laugh together. I was so proud the year GSUSA reached out to the Cookie Team to ask how we kept our girl data "the cleanest in the country", and I told her without a doubt in was due to Lisa and her team's hard work and dedication. Her advice has helped alot of other councils "get it together". I will miss Lisa's magical ability with numbers.

Lisa was always so gracious when I needed help with things. I know she was important to and loved by so many, and I deeply regret that I didn't get the chance to know her better. Her loss to our organization is immeasurable, and she is certainly gone too soon. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and those who loved her.

Lisa was the go to person for all of her coworkers at the Girl Scout Council, regarding data inquiries. Often times, I would feel that I should already know the answer, and was a little embarrassed that I had to bother one of my busiest coworkers. Lisa, however, knew the answer right away and always made me feel encouraged, smarter than I should have and left me with a laugh. I wish I had had more time to spend with her. I will miss her laughter and sage guidance. She is a lasting treasure.
I wish all of her family and friends God's Peace.

We are deeply sorry for your loss.

Lisa was an integral member of the Girl Scouts and dear friend to many. On my first day on the job, she organized a huge potluck and had stocked my desk with supplies. She had the best office decor. I enjoyed hearing about her son’s band’s gigs, Piper’s progress, Food City deals, etc. and sharing many meals together over the years. We will miss her.

Lifting you up.

Lisa was an amazing lady and it is so hard to believe she is gone. I worked with her for 5 years and she was nothing but kind to me always. She liked to give me a hard time. When I would send her multiple questions or issues her nickname for me was trouble. I am going to miss her sense of humor and her laugh. She is going to be so missed by so many.
