Lisa Morse, Collier County Public Schools

In my years in Collier County I have gotten married, started a family, and built a career.   I currently live in Lee County with my husband Matt and our three year old daughter Ellen.  I have truly had a wonderful career and been fortunate to work on projects I believed in and with people whom I respect and admire.    Throughout my career I have worked in professional sports, built a Boys & Girls Club, feed the hungry in Immokalee, and I now work for the school system.

I believe my current position at the Collier County Public School (CCPS) is a culmination of the work I have done in the community thus far.   As a leader in education based nonprofits I have supported children, education, and the school district for over twelve year.  I have built strong relationships that I rely on and benefit from every day. As the Coordinator, Community Partnerships & Engagement at CCPS it is my job to bring the community together around education and the young people that are our future.
