Meet Lisa Key, Board Liaison

Meet Lisa Key, Board Liaison


Lisa joined the Choice family as a Board Liaison in 2015 after twelve years of Educational Leadership experience. She previously worked at Lighthouse Academy, Grand Rapids Public Schools, and worked at Pine Rest Christian Services as a social worker. Lisa earned her Bachelor’s Degree from Michigan State University and her Masters of Social Work & Masters in Educational Leadership from Grand Valley State University. In the 2014-2015 school year, Lisa was named one of MAPSA’s (Michigan Association of Public School Academies) top five finalists for Administrator of Year. Lisa is passionate about children and their academic and social development.

For Lisa, educational leadership is not just a job, it is her life mission to support educators in providing children with optimum educational opportunities.

“I am a servant leader who believes that all children have the capacity to grow and learn so that they can become contributing members of society.”

In her spare time, Lisa enjoys spending time on the beach in California with her son, Jordan, who resides in Los Angeles, her daughter, Jasmine, who is a student at Michigan State University, and her two dogs, Domino and Sammy. Lisa also enjoys horseback riding, gardening, interior design, and cheering on the Michigan State Football Team… GO GREEN!

Lisa is extremely honored to serve at Battle Creek Montessori Academy as your Board Liaison for the 2016-2017 school year. She is grateful to be working with such dedicated staff members and administrators.
