Lisa Aguirre grew up in a small town in Maryland but travelled all over the world in her work for many years in public service at the U.S. State department. More recently, she transferred to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and enjoys this work. She holds a master’s degree in clinical psychology and a law degree from Tulsa University. She is married to Wilde with five adult children and one grandchild. When her youngest was nearing the end of high school, Lisa had a deep sense that she wasn’t quite finished. She began volunteering as a mentor to older teens and young adults in foster care. She discovered what can happen to children who spend many years in an unfair and sometimes tragic system. Her relationships with her mentees and experiences as a volunteer changed her life and she determined to do what she could not only to mentor and support, but also to advocate for older teens and young adults in foster care.
