Meet Lisa Vasquez, NHPHA Board Member

Lisa Vasquez joined the NHPHA Board of Directors earlier this year. She currently serves as the Substance Misuse Prevention Coordinator (SMPC) for the Greater Nashua Public Health Region. Lisa has a MS in mental health Lisa Vasquezcounseling from Southern New Hampshire University, and is a certified prevention specialist. Previously, she has worked with many local organizations including the Youth Council, the Greater Nashua Mental Health Center, and Lamprey Health Care.

“As a SMPC my passion is creating resilient youth. I want everyone to be an involved participant in Prevention efforts,” Lisa told us. “I believe that Prevention is everyone’s responsibility and that it takes a village to make sustainable change.”

Lisa brings that same passion to the NHPHA Board. “I want to be on the Board because Public Health is important to me. Prior to my current position I didn’t understand all that Public Health encompasses and how it touches all the people in the community,” she said. “I am really proud to work in a Public Health setting and hope to continue to learn and grow within the public health sector.”

In addition to her formal public health interests, Lisa is a mother, which is a role that is very important to her. She currently resides in Manchester and loves exploring our beautiful state. She likes to read mystery and suspense novels; She loves to dance and spend time with her family. She is exploring different cultures by trying new foods and listening to music from different parts of the world. And, as if she isn’t busy enough already, Lisa is “into knitting” and hopes to learn to crochet soon.

Welcome to the NHPHA Board of Directors, Lisa!
