She is the mother of two college-aged children, both of whom attend Florida State University. Her son is a PFC in the Army Reserves and is pursuing a commission through FSU ROTC.

She is the President and CEO at Tallahassee-Leon Federal Credit Union and an adjunct professor at Flagler College.
Lisa sits on numerous non-profit boards and is the founder of a non-profit that provides financial education opportunities to the area. She is the founding Chair of the Housing Leadership Council of Tallahassee/Leon County – an organization formed to bring together all sectors to move the needle on affordable housing in our area.
She has earned the reputation as a turn-around CEO, rescuing financial institutions in trouble. She has also traveled the world volunteering her time consulting with financial regulators, individual institutions, and small business owners. Her expertise earned her the role as the first woman graduation speaker for the African Development Educators program in Nairobi last year. “When you witness successful programs that provide a hand up, not a hand out in developing countries that have so little, you realize that we have no excuse. We HAVE to do better!”, Ms. Brown shares.
