Lisa T. Meeks – Chief Executive Officer
Lisa’s first project was her Northside neighbor’s dilapidated single-family home. This remodel sparked a passion to build a stronger community by restoring the abandoned and abused properties in her neighborhood. One home led to another and eventually Lisa transitioned from her career as a civil rights attorney to work full-time as Rock Island’s leader. Her new job still allows her to manifest her personal convictions: building community through restoration of the places we live, and nurturing careers by investing in the training and personal development of Rock Island’s employees. Lisa loves her pets, reading, gardening, raising chickens, beekeeping, and cooking.
