About Lisé:


I began serving as Fiscal Officer in April 2012.  Each day that passes is a learning opportunity for which I am grateful.  Being an integral part of the way our residents receive the level of quality services we are able to provide is a privilege.  My husband Glenn and I have been township residents for 30+ years and are Kent Schools alumni.  We raised our two sons here and they, along with their families, are also township homeowners.  I have spent more than 20 years working with children who have special needs in the Kent City School district.  My love for this community and my commitment to its residents run deep.
