New Board Member

Lisa Cooper

I am Lisa Cooper, married to Jim for 22 years, we have 2 boys Robert 26 and Dakotah 19.  We have lived in Buffalo for 20 years and lived in Hanover for 7 years prior.  The reason I joined the board…  Crossroads has a very special place in our family. We adopted our little dog 3 years ago and my youngest son completed his Eagle Project with building a dog agility course.  My boys have graduated from high school so now I have time to help my community and when I was invited to join the board I accepted.

I hope to help Crossroads find forever homes for animals in need.  I believe that rescue animals are special and deserve love I am ready to roll up my sleeves and help with whatever needs to be completed.  I have experience with fundraising, administrative items and I have experience with other nonprofit boards. I believe my experience can help the board.
