Three interesting things about Lisa:

Why do you love Drake?
The students, faculty, and staff are so engaged in building a supportive community at Drake, and I think that is what helps students thrive. Not only is there a community on campus, but the connections students make in the Des Moines area and beyond are remarkable.
What is your favorite thing to do in Des Moines?
Attend the wide variety of events that happen in the area! I love checking out the farmer’s markets with friends, attending concerts, and going to sporting events. I’m always up for a new activity!
