Mother of Dylan
Lisa joined the Fanconi anemia “FAmily” in 2007, when her 5-month-old son, Dylan, was diagnosed with FA. A world traveler, Lisa has a love of meeting new people and experiencing other cultures. She has lived and worked in four continents and currently lives in Vancouver, Canada with her New Zealand-born husband, Mark, and their two boys, Connor and Dylan. As a Canadian CPA (Chartered Professional Accountant) and CPHR (Chartered Professional of Human Resources), Lisa has experience working across a variety of industries in the Finance, HR, IT and Project Management spaces. Presently, she owns and operates a small architectural practice with her husband. Lisa is looking forward to her continued involvement in progressing FA research as a board member and fundraiser. She and her family have held community-based fundraisers in Vancouver since 2011. Of particular interest to her is expanding FARF's connection to the international community.
