Lisa Renstrom

Lisa Renstrom / Author

Lisa Renstrom is incoming President of Rachel’s Network, a Washington DC based social benefit organization, a network of women philanthropists dedicated to stewardship of the earth.  Lisa, a long-time resident of Charlotte, moved to Charlotte from Acapulco, Mexico where she had owned and operated two family hotels in the 1980’s. The 80-foot hardwoods, delicate dogwoods and redbuds that graced the view from her Charlotte back porch convinced her she had died and gone to heaven. Seeking to ensure that Charlotte become neither Atlanta nor Mexico City, she became a force in greening Charlotte - when green was not the new black. She Co-Chaired the 1997 Charlotte Regional Environmental Summit, was the Interim Executive Director of Voices & Choices and served as the President of the national Sierra Club from 2005 to 2007.
