Meet Lisa, a ReLoving Team Member!
Every week or so we profile a ReLoving Team Member like this week’s introduction to Lisa.
Lisa has a background in people. She worked for the government for 20 years, and event management for 8. She now spends her time working with us, volunteering lots, and with her family. She said “I love volunteering. I currently volunteer for the CIBC Run, the Ministry of Health’s Social Committee, and the Iron Man.”
She was stumped when I asked her what her favourite colour was, and eventually we came to the conclusion that while she likes blues, she loves all bright colours.
This led us to talking about the paint we carry at ReLoving. Lisa told me that she has a goal to work more with the Homestead Milk Paint we carry. She told me “I want to explore more with milk paint, I love how chippy it can be, and I really think you can create some cool pieces with it.”
Speaking of paint… I’ve heard rumours that Lisa is our resident stencilling expert! I’ll have another post up about stencilling and her tips for it in the future. A little tip here…you can usually visit her in the store on Wednesdays. 😛
I asked Lisa if she could travel anywhere in the world, where would she go, and she struggled with this question too! She thinks that she would like to go anywhere with lots of history, or she would love to do a hands-on volunteering trip, with a homestay, so she could not only help a community, but also get a true feel of how other people live.
Finally I asked her, what’s your favourite thing about ReLoving? Her answer: “The ladies I work with, and Jim too of course! I love that we all have creative minds, and we’re constantly learning from each other.”
So that’s Lisa, our volunteering queen!
See you guys later,
