Lisa Knight was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. She is a graduate of Service High School where her love of childhood development began and flourished. During high school, Lisa was a peer teacher for an elementary school as well as the special education classroom at Service High. In 2012 she made the exciting decision to move to San Diego, California. While in San Diego, Lisa became a Realtor with Pacific Sotheby's Intl. Realty, managed two boutique fitness studios and became a Youth Development Leader for the YMCA with a program called Teens in Motion, which is an after-school and summer program for teenagers with special needs. In the fall of 2018, Lisa moved back home to Alaska where she was offered the incredible opportunity to become the Program Executive for the Mat-Su YMCA, which she feels will greatly benefit the community in many new and exciting ways.
Lisa is a lover of the outdoors, you can regularly find her hiking, fishing, rock climbing, and camping. She also has a passion for ultramarathon running and traveling.
