Director of Organizing, Missoula Interfaith Collaborative
Lisa Davey grew up in Montana and has engaged in coalition building with many community members and organizations over the years. As a young mom of three children, one of whom is Autistic and faces numerous health challenges due to his premature birth, she advocated locally, regionally, and nationally for maternal child health and the passage and implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. She is a graduate of AMCHP's Family Scholar Program and URLEND as well as a former Title V delegate for Department of Health and Human Services. After attending graduate school to study communication, where she focused on rhetoric and social movements, Lisa worked for the MT State AFLCIO for two years before joining Missoula Interfaith Collaborative. As Director of Organizing for Common Good Missoula, she is thrilled to strengthen community engagement and empower everyday citizens to participate in the public sphere. She lives on her hobby farm with her three children (ages 15, 12, and 8), her partner Saxon, two border collies named Luna and Roxie, a large vegetable garden and many sheep, chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys and a cow. When she's not busy working or farming, you'll find her hiking, rafting, or camping. One of her favorite things is enjoying our public lands.
