Lisa Jacobs is a member of the Basser Center Advisory Board. She is a graduate of George Washington University (BS ’88 in Business Administration) and of NYU (Masters ’93 in Arts and Administration). She has an extensive background in credit analysis, finance, as well as corporate advertising. She has been the president of a custom stationary business for the past 10 years, while at the same time a passionate yogi.
Lisa has taken a leadership role on several non-profit education boards, donated her time to children in Camden for the Bookmates Project, and has also undertaken numerous fundraising efforts designed to raise cancer awareness. Losing her father, a BRCA carrier, at the age of 68 to pancreatic cancer, has fueled her passion to raise awareness of the BRCA mutations.
