Lisa Penny, Director of Partner Sites at Mary Crane Center and Jennifer Page Santana, Lead Teacher at St. Nicholas
You definitely want to meet Lisa Penny, Mary Crane's Director of Partner Sites! Lisa is celebrating her 20 th anniversary with Mary Crane Center this May, and our families are fortunate she is here!
In May 1999, Lisa worked as a parent volunteer while both of her children attended the Lathrop/North site in West Lakeview. Due to Lisa's fantastic volunteer work, not to mention her fabulous smile, she was a good fit as a Teacher Aide and a caregiver for Mary Crane Center. As she continued her education, and with her increased experience, it led her to be promoted several times over the years to the positions of Teacher Assistant, Lead Teacher, Family Worker, and Site Director.
