Growing up in a supportive and inclusive environment, Lisa Jenkins witnessed the transformative power of acceptance and equality. However, she also recognized the challenges and discrimination faced by many within the LGBTQ community. This awareness ignited a passion within Lisa Jenkins to become an advocate for LGBTQ rights, promoting a society where every individual is celebrated for their authentic selves. Her diverse background in mental health case management and alter hospitality events equips her with the skills to contribute to the organization’s strategic planning, program development, and community outreach. She brings a collaborative and empathetic approach to the board, valuing open dialogue and collective decision-making. She believes that together we can create a society where LGBTQ individuals are not only accepted but celebrated for their unique contributions. She is humbled and honored to serve on the board of Triversity and look forward to making a meaningful impact on the lives of LGBTQ individuals, their families and our communities.
