Volunteer Spotlight

Lisbeth Driskill

Lisbeth just recently celebrated her one year anniversary with TGIA. She is the secretary for our board of directors. When she is not volunteering with our organization she works full time as an attorney. Before moving to Charlotte, NC, Lisbeth was in private practice in Virginia, where her primary practice was helping families with special needs individuals.

As an Army veteran Lisbeth has had the opportunity to travel and learn about many different cultures. It is because of Lisbeth’s hard work and support that we are able to make an impact in the community.
