Lisa is an advisor to the Union of Reform Judaism’s Campaign for Youth Engagement, and a previous Board member of the L.A. District Attorney’s Crime Prevention Foundation.  She serves the City of Beverly Hills as a commissioner of its Cultural Heritage Commission, and she is an active Board member of the Make-a-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles, the Jewish Community Foundation of Los Angeles, and the Cedars-Sinai Board of Governors. Lisa and her husband, Joshua, endowed the first-ever chair in IBD Genetics at Cedars-Sinai Hospital, and they are active donors to many organizations.  Lisa holds a bachelor's degree from UCLA and an MBA from Pepperdine University. She lives in Beverly Hills with her husband and five children.

I have enjoyed working with The Foundation leadership to organize and manage my philanthropic activities and deepen my impact. I am excited to build on these relationships, and to exchange insights as a member of the Board of Trustees.
