- A couple of quotes about Dr. Lisa, as stated by her nominator, Brett Antczak:
- Lisa (as we call her) has demonstrated a great sense of responsibility and fighting spirit during this pandemic. Aside from seeing patients 7 days per week in the clinic and hospital, she extends her influential reach by seeing at-risk patients in their cars, traveling to patient’s homes or via telehealth. Dr. Lisa is also the Medical Director for Lake County Public Health Agency, and serves as St. Vincent Health’s Chief Medical Officer. She has been tireless in her tenacious care, and her community outreach and is a true leader for our rural medical community in Leadville. Dr Lisa not only goes above and beyond in her care but inspires and motivates other to try and keep up with her pace.
