Lisa Marquette

Lisa Marquette is VISTE’s first Development Director and works primarily with our individual donors to advance VISTE’s mission.  Lisa’s development experience has been in higher education fundraising where she facilitated support of scholarships, academic departments, and other educational funds through both outright and deferred planned gifts.  She believes the most gratifying aspect of her work at VISTE is providing people with information and the opportunity to support something truly meaningful for them.   

Lisa has always been an active and engaged member in the communities where she has resided, including the higher ed community, where she served seven years as a volunteer chaperone for students with Habitat for Humanity spring break trips.  In addition to her professional role at VISTE, she also looks forward to volunteering for the organization.  A new resident to Lakeland, she is happy to be a part of such a caring and philanthropic community.  She and her husband, Ron, have four children and a cat named Sam.
