HOW LONG HAVE YOU LIVED IN CHARLOTTE AREA?
TELL US A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT YOU?
I am a wife to my awesome partner in crime, Dr. Grant Lisetor and mom to the most precious little boy named Barrett; who will soon be a big brother! I love chiropractic as it changed my life. On top of migraines and hypoglycemia, I was told by two gynecologists that I would never conceive a child. Chiropractic care changed all those elements of my health and we now have a beautiful growing family that I absolutely adore. I’m thankful to be a business owner so I am able to be there for the important times in our family’s lives. I am also privileged to be a small group leader for 10th grade girls at Ridge Church. I have always felt it a priority to stand beside and guide our up and coming generation so that they are equipped for this world. It is amazing to see their growth and maturity over the years and they bless me in so many ways. I love espresso, whiskey and Jesus and that about sums me up!
DURING YOUR TIME VOLUNTEERING FOR A COMMUNITY ACTIVITY OR PROJECT, WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORIAL MOMENT?
If I had to pick just one moment, I would have to choose one from our first annual thanksGIVING drive. We had been cooking thanksgiving meals all morning for homeless or misplaced families and we had one meal left that had not been delivered so I hung my apron and decided to do it myself. When I arrived to the Laquita Inn motel room, my knocks went unanswered, but I could see children playing and watching TV. When I realized it was about 7+ kids, I realized they would need more food. Thankfully we had more to give and I set it outside their door and watched for a few minutes and an older child grabbed the food. It was one of those moments that has driven me to use our business to do more. Since that first thanksGIVING we have done countless community outreaches to make Charlotte a little better. Could you imagine if all businesses in Charlotte did just a little outreach each year?
IN YOUR OPINION, HOW DO YOU CONTRIBUTE TO THE COMMUNITY?
As a medical business owner, we provide the best chiropractic care to pediatrics, pregnant women and families. Outside of business, we use our office to support our community by doing things such as our annual thanksGIVING drive where last year we fed over 250 families warm meals on Thanksgiving Day. Each year we also do a bike or scooter drive before summer and deliver them with Charlotte Police Dept so underprivileged kids can be active and get around for the summer. We also do a school supply drive at the end of summer for Nations Ford Elementary and then an angel tree during Christmas. Aside from Greater Life Chiropractic, I am also a youth leader at Ridge Church.
