About Lisa Bergeson
Director Of Development | She/Her
I bring over 18 years of development and fundraising experience to the role of Director of Development. Donor cultivation, board involvement, corporate partnership development, educational opportunities and mentorship, and intentional stewardship are all pieces of the puzzle that create connection and growth within an organization. I am excited to work with the talented team at WIA to achieve the goals set out for the upcoming year and beyond.
My family has called Portland, Oregon home for over 40 years after moving here from sunny Cerritos, California. In the evenings and weekends, you will find me spending time with my husband and three adult children, my extended family and our tight-knit group of friends. We are lucky to be surrounded by hiking trails and lots of trees and Mt. Hood is only a 45 minute drive away.
I love trying new things and I love anything spicy!
Golf, writing, hiking trails and beach days, learning new cooking recipes, making charcuterie boards, going wine tasting (That’s a legitimate hobby) :).
Jim Croce, John Denver, James Taylor, Fleetwood Mac, The Eagles
Toy Story, The Little Mermaid and Tangled are at the top of the list
Manzanita, Oregon – and anywhere that my whole family is together
