2022 40 Under 40 Winners


Director, Development

University of British Columbia
Faculty of Medicine
Vancouver, BC

Lisa has raised more than $32 million for the University of British Columbia Faculty of Medicine in the last five years.

She built a fundraising program supporting the Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health at UBC – resulting in several $1M+ gifts for this institutional priority. 

Lisa volunteers as a member of the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) District 8 Cabinet, and she co-chaired the Opportunity & Inclusion Committee for the 2022 District 8 conference in Vancouver.

In 2019 Lisa won the 'Crowning Achievement' Award for the most Major Gifts closed at UBC – a standout achievement on a very large fundraising team.

Fun Fact:

I got my start in the nonprofit sector as a result of my involvement with slam poetry and spoken word while in university, where I hosted events, wrote grants and managed volunteers (in addition to performing at local, national and international events).
