She previously served for two years as Assistant Director and Director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL)/JCRC Collaboration in Austin. Lisa now leads the JCRC in planning, coordinating, and implementing an effective program of positive community relations both within the Jewish community and between the Jewish and the general community in the Austin area by joining and building coalitions to promote effective action and opportunities for community involvement.

A life-long Texan at heart, from 1994-2004 Lisa lived in Los Angeles, earning graduate degrees from the University of Southern California.  Following graduate school, Lisa worked for the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation (now the USC Shoah Foundation Institute) as a researcher and director of access to the archive for scholars and universities.  In her role as a researcher, Lisa listened to and indexed more that 200 testimonies of Holocaust survivors, representing more the 500 hours of testimony.  Working with three top-flight research institutions (Rice University, USC, and Yale University), Lisa led the implementation of a $1 million grant to create remote access to the Shoah Foundation’s 2 terabyte archive of visual history testimonies.  She also worked with faculty to develop lessons and teaching strategies using visual history testimony.

Since moving to Austin, Lisa has been active in the Jewish community as a volunteer and professional.  From 2005-2007 she served in volunteer leadership positions with the Austin Jewish Book Fair, a 10-day community event that draws thousands of attendees each year.  In 2007 she joined the ADL/JCRC Collaboration, focusing on matters related to church-state separation, advocacy for Israel, and community Holocaust commemoration.  She represented the ADL and JCRC at the Texas Legislature during the 81st session, testifying on bills and joining the Governor at signing ceremonies.  She has taught at USC, and served as a guest lecturer several times at the University of Texas at Austin.

A native of Houston, Texas, Lisa earned her undergraduate degree at Trinity University in San Antonio.
