About Our Staff

Tracy joined Pay-It-Forward House in August of 2022. She has 16 years of non-profit and government experience.

Prior to joining Pay-It-Forward House, Tracy worked in a variety of roles at Northern Illinois Food Bank, including Human Resources, Advocacy, SNAP, and Child Nutrition over 11 years. She spent the 5 years prior to that working in deployment and family readiness for the United States Marine Corps Community Services.

Tracy volunteers with her children's elementary school PTO, as a Girl Scout leader for 2 troops, and by regularly donating blood. She assumes the best in people, but listens to enough true crime shows to know better.

Tracy has a degree in political science from East Stroudsburg University in PA, near where she grew up. She lives with her husband, 3 daughters, 2 cats, and varied aquatic life in Geneva.
Lisa has been with the Pay-It-Forward House organization since 2015. As a volunteer she served as a Friendly Face, event and office support volunteer.

Lisa is happy to be back in her preferred role as Administrative Assistant as of September 2022.
