Executive Director

Lisa serves Compass Women’s Center as the Executive Director. She desires that our community will come to know Compass as the “welcoming, safe and warm place” it has been referred to by many.

About Lisa

Since her youth, Lisa always had a desire to use her life to serve the needs of others, and has done so in multiple countries, including Germany, Mongolia, Costa Rica, and Paraguay over the last 30 years.

As a native of Oakland, Maryland, she is well acquainted with Morgantown and excited to serve in the local community. Lisa delights in all people, and as a mother of four and a new grandmother to three, she is especially partial to “littles!”  She enjoys learning from others and walking alongside volunteers, donors, and families at Compass while offering a heart of compassion, care and help.

Administrative Assistant

Lissy serves Compass Women’s Center as the Administrative Assistant. She loves serving fellow women and families by shining hope into dark situations.

About Lissy

Lissy’s ‘People Skills’ degree in Intercultural Studies and Communications first led her into the property management world before she pivoted and spent a year as a full-time volunteer working with fostering families, food banks, and the local homeless community.

Then, God led her to look for work again the same weekend the Admin Assistant job posted to the Compass website! Her favorite part of the job is getting to know all of the clients and volunteers as they pass by her workspace at the front desk. Outside of work, Lissy has been married since 2016 to her college sweetheart. They love to travel and hope some day to make it back to Estonia for the national song festival held every 5 years.
