Director of Early Childhood Education

With Breakthrough since 2002

Lisa’s involvement with Breakthrough began as a volunteer for the after-school program and, later, volunteering to lead the early childhood education programing. She also served as a teacher for Breakthrough Beginners. She has obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education and a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education Administration. Her most significant memories at Breakthrough have been expanding the early childhood education program from part-time to a full day of programming, as well as when the Breakthrough Beginners received a Silver Accreditation Level from the state of Illinois. Her three children were enrolled in Breakthrough Beginners and are still involved with Breakthrough. Lisa enjoys going out to eat, reading, exploring Chicago’s communities, and traveling.
