Lisa served as the Parliamentary Procedure specialist for the Penn State Teach Ag! Program from fall 2015 through spring semester 2016. When asked what she enjoyed most about here position, Lisa mentioned, "I loved being able to help students across the state learn about Parliamentary Procedure, as it is a topic I have come to love and hate at the same time. I enjoyed being a peer figure students could turn to for advice."
As an agricultural education major, Lisa looks forward to student teaching in 2019. Lisa decided to become an agriculture educator midway through her freshman year, making a dramatic change from her aspirations to be a fashion designer! Her decision was confirmed during her year serving as an FFA State Officer. "I want to be an FFA advisor for the rest of my life. I face challenges everyday with a non-traditional agricultural background, but I am relying on college courses, internships and resources to gain new knowledge.
Lisa is a member of the Berks agricultural and environmental club, and PSU Teach Ag! Society. Lisa has also used her leadership capabilities to serve as a first year mentor on campus, as well as an orientation leader.
If you could be any animal, what would you be & why? Definitely a bird so I could fly, have beautiful colored plumage, and so I could actually sing.
