Executive Director – South Florida
Lisa May serves as Executive Director of Live the Life South Florida with a mission of strengthening marriages and families through healthy relationship education beginning in middle school through senior adults. She has been involved in the non-profit communities since 1996 serving as a board member, Director of Marketing & Development, Major Gifts Officer, and VP positions. Her background has been fund development with an emphasis on marriage and family, foster care, and pregnancy centers but her life for the past 18 years, as a widow and single parent, has increased her passion for emotionally healthy, intact families with both Mom and Dad in the home.
With the help of others, Lisa launched Live the Life South Florida in the Fall of 2013 and will have presented educational seminars to more than 8000 by 2018. Lisa received a BS from Florida State University and attended New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. In addition, she has a Certificate in Fundraising Management from The Center of Philanthropy at Indiana University-Perdue. She has served her communities and church in a variety of positions and currently serves Keiser University as an Advisory Board member for the School of Psychology.
Her mission in life is teach others how to live out the first and second commandments. “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40.
Lisa is the Mother of Amanda, Paul, Molly and Houston. She has lived in North, Central and South Florida but she considers South Florida her beloved home.
