Lisa Rowe came to Families Together with over 20 years of management experience focusing on creating, implementing, and improving programs. As a kid, Lisa had dreams of a place in the country where dogs without homes could live, run, and play together. She later went on to obtain her BA in Psychology and an MPA from NC State University. As the ED, she has grown the staff and expanded the goals of Families Together. In addition, she has worked to enhance diversity on the Families Together board, re-structure/strengthen board committees, and put adequate policies and procedures into place that address things such as HR, risk management, and program issues. She lives in West Raleigh with her two kids and their two dogs.
