Lisa is the most cheerful, positive person you will most likely ever meet. When Heritage Park’s Children’s Librarian was promoted, Lisa stepped up and took on 6 storytimes each week. These storytimes draw crowds of 50-170 people and Lisa treats each program as an opportunity to share her joy and talents with the Irvine community. She gives dozens of high 5s to her young admirers each day and takes the time to pay attention to each child and each parent. Her optimism and energy never flag and her attitude is golden.
