Lisa has lived in the current 16th District since she moved to Peoria County in 1990 to take a job as the County's Recycling Coordinator. In 2001 she moved to Harvard to open an office for The Nature Conservancy, and in 2002 she became the first full time executive director for The Land Conservancy of McHenry County, and has been there ever since.
