Meet Lisa Vanatta, Director of Member Relations
I experience great joy meeting people and learning about their unique life experiences. I always walk away better, because I truly believe we can learn something from everyone we meet.

My work experience is very diverse, which has challenged me to sharpen those skills that don’t come naturally and polish those that are a natural part of who I was created to be.

If I could describe a day to remember, it would look a lot like a gathering at the beach of family, both blood and chosen, music, dancing, laughter and good food being enjoyed by all.

I am super excited about building deeper relationships with the fantastic people of Lewisville. Lewisville will always have a special place in my heart. A few years ago, I was welcomed into the Lewisville Area Chamber with open arms, which resulted in a restored sense of community that was missing in my life for a season.
