Smith says the rewards of being the director of philanthropic impact with the United Way far outweigh the challenges.
It can be rare for someone to find a career they love, to which they devote a great deal of time and effort.
But this perfectly defines Lisa Smith, a tenacious go-getter whose selfless purpose is to do whatever she can to help others.
