Lisa Riggsbee, our new communications intern, is joining us to write for our blog, keep you up to date on social media and spearhead our summer Lunch and Learns. We are excited to introduce Lisa to you and to work with her this summer. Her enthusiasm and drive are already evident and we look forward to the innovation she will bring to all that she will do at SimplyHome!
Lisa is a student at University of North Carolina-Asheville (UNCA) where she is a Health and Wellness Promotion major with minors in Psychology and Mass Communication. Lisa was recently named a Community Engaged Scholar for UNCA for her outstanding achievements in community wellness promotion while working with organizations such as the YMCA Youth Development Center/Healthy Living Campaign, Pursuing Health Equity Asheville and UNCA’s HAPI Lab.
Having a passion for writing and community wellness promotion, Lisa seemed like a good fit for our team. Lisa was recently featured on the Y-USA’s Young Leader’s blog. Her experiences from the classroom and from her internship with the YMCA, will bring new perspective to our staff.
When she is not in the classroom, you can find Lisa enjoying the sunshine on a hike or hanging out with a good cup of coffee. Having played volleyball and studied abroad during her time at UNCA, Lisa has come to us with a broad skill set and a unique angle on community health and healthy living. Her ultimate goal is to help people help themselves in all areas of life.
Lisa will graduate from UNCA in the spring of 2015, at which time she hopes to pursue a career in community and public health.
