We are sharing bittersweet news — enCircle’s Chief Operating Officer, Lisa Morgan, is moving on to a new leadership opportunity in Massachusetts. Though she will be missed at enCircle, we are grateful she’ll be continuing our shared mission of supporting people with developmental disabilities.
"Lisa has been an integral part of our leadership at enCircle. She has guided our growth over the last few years, both in developmental services and in other areas such as immigration services," said CEO Ray Ratke. "She is also a huge reason we have a positive culture based on our Guiding Principles throughout our organization."
Lisa has more than 28 years of experience in the nonprofit sector. She has been with enCircle for nearly seven years and started her career at enCircle as Vice President of Strategic Growth and Program Development. She has served as COO for nearly four years. Over the course of her career, Lisa has managed a wide array of programs for people with developmental disabilities in Montreal, Baltimore, Atlanta, and Virginia.
Since March 2020 she has served as the Convenor of the Lutheran Services in America Disability Network (LSA-DN). "She has been a phenomenal leader who has steered the LSA-DN through the pandemic and actively led the network," said Charlotte Haberaecker, CEO of Lutheran Services in America. "We will miss Lisa’s leadership, her insights and her strategic guidance."
We appreciate her years of dedication and commitment to enCircle and wish Lisa all the best as the new CEO of the Kennedy-Donovan Center! As enCircle Board Chair Rick Goeres said at Lisa’s final Board meeting in October, "You will be a wonderful gift to them."
