Lisa Illing

Board Member

Native to the Bahamas, Lisa’s island roots date back several generations. She is a mother of four children and has enjoyed a 20+ year career in finance as an accountant. Lisa (aka Mama Lis) is at her best when her household is brimming with teenagers and young adults. She enjoys the lessons, the learning, and the laughter young people bring to any environment.

 
Having raised and educated four uniquely different children around the globe, Lisa has a strong belief in the benefits of education through travel, cultural immersion, and experiential learning. Lisa’s daughter was once a struggling student in a traditional school. It was only when Lisa and her husband took the leap of faith into recognizing that “what she learned” was not as important as “how she learned” that their daughter’s education experience shifted, and she was able to flourish from a defeated student to a confident and happy individual.
 
Lisa believes that a student’s experience in education should not label or pre-determine who they are but aid them with the self-discovery as to who they want to be.
