What causes or nonprofits do you feel strongly about or want to volunteer with? (ex: hunger, the environment or Habitat) Do you currently volunteer with any nonprofits?

I run the KC Chronic Pain Support Group and am a Pain Ambassador for the US Pain Foundation. I advocate for people in pain everyday. I am also a member of the KC Patient Access Coalition (working mostly on Legislative issues) and the Relieving Pain in Kansas City Initiative as a member trying to make lasting positive changes for people in Chronic Pain in the Kansas City Metro area.

What type of volunteer work are you interested in doing? (ex. sorting or organizing, cooking/serving food, building or physical work, ect.) Do you have any special skills?

Photography, Computers, Office Work, and probably more. I just can't do work that requires standing, stooping or bending at all. I really enjoy advocating for people in pain and networking with others!

The Serve KC Leadership Team is made up of volunteer Organizers and Event Hosts. Would you be interested in hosting an occasional event or organizing with a new nonprofit?

Yes, Possibly

What do you hope to get from volunteering with Serve KC?

I live in Jackson County MO.

How did you find out about Serve KC?

Searching through the meetup groups.

Introduction

Hi, My name is Lisa and I live with Chronic Pain every day but I do not let it define who I am. My passion is to help others who also live with pain through the support group that I run in the KC area and also nationwide. I'll try to do what I can!
