New Member Feature: Lisa Campbell

Lisa and her sponsor Natalie.

We were thrilled to welcome Lisa Fanceschi-Campbell into our club this week. She’s not a fan of boasting about herself, but she managed to put together this short list to help her sponsor – Natalie Dunn – introduce Lisa to the club.
“Lisa wanted to share her favorite bible verse, which just happened to pop up today for her daily reading which is timely because it encompasses why she is excited to join Rotary.
Ephesians 2:8-9. ‘For it is grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God – not by works, so that no one can boast.’
Lisa does not like writing about herself!
She believes that past achievements and lessons learned are just foundation steps to the next obstacle or mountain to overcome, but provided a few bullet points and life highlights that give an idea into who she is and what she does:
