The TIS admin staff is pleased to welcome Lisa Olivares to our team. Lisa is our Alumni and Engagement Coordinator, a new position created to develop and improve our alumni relations program here at the school.
Lisa has an extensive background in non-profit fundraising and event planning, primarily with environmental organizations. Most recently, she was Executive Director of the Straub Environmental Center, where she oversaw fundraising events, donor outreach, volunteer recruitment, and the development of program materials. She continued to work with Straub on a contract basis while she took some time off to be with her young children. Lisa received her BS in Natural Resources and Environmental Science and her Master’s in Urban Planning from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Some of you may have already met Lisa, as she is also a TIS parent! We are happy that she will now be contributing her professional expertise to the TIS community. Welcome, Lisa!
