“This prestigious award is presented to an individual whose personal integrity, decency and contributions to the elderly best exemplify the ideals of our member organizations and their missions, and who serves as a constant inspiration to us all. We are honored to present Lisa with this richly deserved award,” wrote Mag Morelli, President LeadingAge Connecticut, in the congratulations letter she sent out.
Through her dedication to McLean, Lisa has provided passionate and unwavering leadership to the organization for the past 20 years; 11 of them in this role. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Quinnipiac College in Occupational Therapy (1991) and has a Long-Term Care Administrator certificate from the University of Connecticut (2007).
“This honor is well-deserved,” said McLean President David Bordonaro. “Lisa has a gift of being able to transform the vision she has always had for McLean into a reality, which has persevered through this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic. Her strong focus on providing person-centered care ensures our residents are safe and have the emotional support they need, and that every decision we make is based on our State and National guidelines for their well-being and that of our entire community. Her calm and steady nature have helped to guide our residents, staff and our McLean families.”
The award presentation will take place at LeadingAge Connecticut’s Virtual Annual Meeting to be held from 3:15 p.m. to 3:45 p.m. on October 13, 2020.
