Lisa joined The Ivey in July 2014. Having achieved her RN degree from Mercy College of Northwest Ohio, she has an abundance of experience in nursing roles at St. Charles Hospital (Oregon, OH), Carepoint in Charlotte, and Carolinas Medical Center in Pineville – where she served as charge nurse for a 32-bed unit, worked as a Diabetes Liaison, and served on the Nursing Quality Improvement Committee and the Unit Based Council.
Where were you born and/or where did you grow up? I was born in Grand Rapids, OH, 45 minutes west of Toledo. I lived there all my life, until five years ago!
Favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon? Hanging out with my family – either in the woods or on my bike (woods or road!). I love to be outdoors.
What excites you about your work at The Ivey and the contribution you make here? “I love being able to come to work and spend time with our members with whom I have developed such a close relationship. One of my favorite times of the day is when I greet our members in the morning – I get lots of hugs and kisses every morning, which I love! I also enjoy the close relationships I am able to build with the members’ families. We have our own ‘family’ here at The Ivey.”
