lisaLisa Moore, Director

I have had the privilege of working at Ventures Travel since 2010. After receiving a degree in Social Work I worked for LSS in Iowa. Next, I decided to take my social work skills to the sky and became a flight attendant for Northwest Airlines! I was a flight attendant for 25 years before joining Ventures Travel. Working at Ventures Travel combines both my education and passion for working with people, along with my travel experience! I find great joy in being a part of a program dedicated to providing life changing travel experiences for the amazing people we serve! Their stories and smiles at the end of the trip make all I do worthwhile and are a constant reminder that travel is more than just a luxury; it’s an opportunity to experience the world!
