Lisa Lambert serves as a Program Officer for ServeMinnesota and is part of the team responsible for program management, monitoring, and support. Through her role, Lisa hopes to help programs maximize the impact of AmeriCorps service – both on the communities being served and on the members serving. A self-proclaimed “AmeriCorps Lifer,” Lisa has been connected to AmeriCorps since 2002, when she served in the City of Lakes AmeriCorps program. Following that, she became an AmeriCorps site supervisor (and after-school program coordinator) for Minneapolis Public Schools before becoming AmeriCorps program staff in 2008. In her various program staff roles over 14+ years, Lisa gained experience with member training and support, grant writing and reporting, financial management, and AmeriCorps grant compliance. Her direct involvement with members and program outcomes, combined with her experience in the Education and Youth Development fields, fuel Lisa’s belief in the people power of AmeriCorps – that people are our nation’s best resource, and AmeriCorps is an ideal way to utilize that resource in addressing our nation’s challenges.
Lisa holds a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with a minor concentration in Journalism. True to form, she enjoys any activity involving stories.
