Nurse, teacher, mentor…these are a few of the words used to describe Lisa. As an Assistant Professor of Nursing at Methodist College of Nursing, Lisa instills the values of compassion and giving back to the community.

One particular project that really hit home for these students was the creation of Ollie’s Pantry. You see Ollie’s Pantry is a food pantry designed to help nursing students who live on a fixed income. The pantry supplies groceries, baby food, diapers and other necessities. Students benefited first hand in seeing what a difference they can make in their community and in the lives of their peers. Ollie’s Pantry also teaches students that a little compassion and effort can make all the difference in the world to another human being.

For all of her efforts and devotion we award Lisa Preston a place among our 25 Women in Leadership.
