Lisa Swauger, Board Member

My name is Lisa Swauger, and I am a highly experienced professional who has held various positions in the furniture and textile industry, including Vice President, Home Furnishings Product Manager, and Design Director. After a successful career, I chose to focus on my family and spent the past 21 years raising my two children, who are now adults.

My interest in community service began when my oldest child was in elementary school. I joined the Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) and assumed the role of Basket Raffle Chair, followed by a position as VP of Family Events on the board. As my children grew older, we volunteered together for organizations such as the National Charity League, Young Men's Service League, and the Central Night Shelter in Atlanta.

In 2012, I joined Kiddos Clubhouse Foundation, where I played a pivotal role in organizing their annual 5K run, which was their primary fundraiser. I was responsible for soliciting corporate sponsorships and donations, and I played a critical role in the set-up and organization of the event. I was eventually invited to join the board and attended regular meetings as well as quarterly scholarship reviews, where I participated in the decision-making process for scholarship awards.

Since relocating to Texas, I have continued my commitment to community service by working with Doodle Dandy Rescue as a foster. My primary role is to help dogs find permanent homes, and I find this work to be very rewarding.

I am passionate about volunteering with organizations that help those who are unable to help themselves, and I am confident that my experience and expertise would be an asset to any organization.
