Lisa Schildt began volunteering at SAFE in 2019 on a chore shift and Night Check. Lisa continues as a chore shift co-lead and fills in as needed on other shifts. Always eager for more fun, Lisa was happy to add Herd Health Records, SAFEKeeper Coordinator, and Adoption Volunteer to her responsibilities. In Herd Health Records, Lisa maintains SAFE’s database of its horses’ health information as well as the spreadsheets that track horse care. As SAFEKeeper Coordinator, Lisa focuses on keeping SAFE’s monthly donor information updated and the donors informed of progress on the horses they sponsor. As an adoption volunteer, Lisa tracks incoming adoption applications and responds to initial inquiries about the adoption process. And whenever possible, Lisa loves to help on Facilities projects, especially weed whacking.

Lisa’s volunteer background includes positions as Board Member and Officer for various non-profit organizations such as The American Red Cross, PTA, Toastmasters, and a community medical clinic, as well as volunteering with other animal rescue groups. Prior to her retirement from the corporate world, Lisa worked as a paralegal and in the US and Germany for an international clinical research organization and biopharmaceutical services company. When not volunteering for SAFE, Lisa enjoys gardening, weaving, and knitting. She is primary can-opener for two extra-large cats.
