COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS RESPONSE FUND: Donate now to protect public health and support our most vulnerable people

Lisa Eissmann

Front Office Administrative Assistant

A self-professed "people person", Lisa feels honored to be at the front desk as one of the first points of contact for visitors to the Foundation. She finds joy in connecting with people and making every interaction with colleagues and community members a positive experience.

Lisa's background is in providing exceptional customer service, with 18 years in commercial insurance, as well as administrative positions in other local businesses. Her recent move into the nonprofit world is giving her the opportunity to learn about the many passionate people at work in our community to ensure that Santa Cruz County is a place for all to live and thrive.

While working in the insurance industry, Lisa organized an office holiday drive to adopt a family for a local agency, which sparked an interest in volunteering and becoming more invested in her community. She encourages her children to volunteer and has joined them in serving meals, stocking food pantries, and walking to end Alzheimer's. Lisa is passionate about the importance of human connection and her role at the Foundation affords her the opportunity to live this belief daily!
