Assistant to the Director
Lisa has worn many hats in her role as Dr. Cleveland’s executive assistant since 2016. Chances are, if you've emailed us at the Center for Justice + Renewal, or tried to book Dr. Cleveland as a speaker, you've connected with Lisa, the Keeper of All Logistical Information. A recent St. Louis transplant, Lisa enjoys exploring their new city with her husband, Tim, and three fierce, adventurous daughters. One part ringmaster, one part short-order chef, two parts nurturer, three parts unapologetic word-nerd, Lisa wants to be where the action is, as long as she doesn’t have to be center stage. When she isn’t pushing for educational equity in her community or volunteering with local organizations, Lisa loves to sing and play her ukulele. She prefers to have her house filled with guests, likes to read and play board games, and has a soft spot for surly introverts.
Director of Media + Communications
Enchanta is a digital strategist committed to racial justice and gender equity. Living in Washington, DC, she has worked on local, national, and international initiatives including Obama for America, Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Color Of Change. Enchanta is completing her 250-hour yoga certification and is passionate about creating inclusive spaces for people of all races and sizes to connect with their bodies and spirits through yoga. A Kentucky native, Enchanta knows a thing or two about whiskey, and is the founder of Women & Whiskey Wednesday (W3), which began in March 2017 as a response to the need for Black women to have secure spaces to try new liquors, like whiskey and bourbons, without the worry of being preyed on or taken advantage of. Since its inception, W3 has become a hub for sisterhood, music, and laughs. Enchanta deeply believes in the words of June Jordan, "We are the ones we have been waiting for."
