Lisa Barrett resides in Calgary, AB. She has worked in the not for profit sector for the last several years as a Fund Development and Communications Manager. Most recently, she worked in a second stage shelter for women and children who had fled domestic violence.

 

In 2003/2004 Lisa attended Mt. Royal College and completed the National Program in Fundraising Management. Before moving to Calgary in 2003 she worked as a Payroll/HR Manager for 13 years in a construction company in the interior of BC.

 

With over 20 years experience in grass roots community programs and initiatives, Lisa has real world exposure in working with multiple stakeholders to get results, often with very limited resources. A significant part of this experience has been lobbying government. Lisa is focusing on transitioning to the corporate sector, ideally in a Marketing & Communications role.

 

When Lisa embarked on her MBA journey in May, 2010 she had no idea how difficult it would be to finance her educational dream. It is clear... funding issues are a major concern for graduate students who attend on a full and part-time basis. Lisa would like to see changes in the qualifying criteria for government student loans.

 

On a personal note Lisa has 3 wonderful grown children and 2 grandchildren who call her Gamma (she is too young to be called Grandma or Granny). Although, she may be Gamma to some, she is a Gamma with a mission to others. Her favourite place on earth is Maui, she is a die-hard rock and roll fan, and recently Lisa joined a painting class to explore her creative side... which is right next to her no-nonsense side.
