Dr. Lisa, as many of her patients and colleagues knew her by, was devoted to treating all of her patients with exceptional and decisive care, compassion, and passion. She will always be remembered by us as an amazing periodontist, partner, boss, and friend who enjoyed every moment of her life. Together we learned alongside of her, enjoyed work events and activities with her, celebrated milestones, and supported her during her courageous fight. There are not enough words for us to truly convey our heartfelt emotions so we will do our best to honor her in memory and actions. In June of 2019 we participated in the Relay for Life event at the Canal Winchester High School. We gathered together to walk for her and others who have or are fighting this fight as well as their caretakers. Our team was able to raise over $1500 towards our $1000 goal from outside donations.
