President Rob welcomed new member, Lisa Nelson, during our meeting on July 17th.  Lisa was born in London England.  While living in Europe, she worked in the travel industry.  In 1996, Lisa ventured to the USA, has lived in North Carolina, Virginia and finally to Yuma in 2003.  She has worked at the YMCA for five years and currently is Membership/Health & Wellness Director.
Lisa has three children, Benjamin (12), Thomas (9) and Meggie (5).  Lisa says her true hero is her "mum".  She passed away from breast cancer in June 1999.  Lisa is walking in the 3 day walk to be held in San Diego during November for her mother and all the survivors and the people still fighting, for people that didn't win the fight and all their families for the strength and support they give.  Lisa looks at life as an adventure.  All things are possible if you believe.
