With the belief that everyone has a right to know who their birth family is, Lisa has reunited over 3,000 families separated through adoption and relinquishment.
Lisa has personal experience with the reunification process. In 1998, she reunited with her younger half sister who was placed for adoption at birth. With the insights of this firsthand experience, Lisa works tirelessly to make the reunion as smooth, comfortable, and quick as possible. She is available for any support that may be needed through the search process, to ease the anxiety and fears that may arise.
