    Born and raised in Lansing, graduate of J W Sexton High School and Davenport University, DeLisa began working for the City of Lansing in September 2014. Prior to coming to the City of Lansing, DeLisa was a Lead Community Organizer for N.E.O.N. (Nurturing Early On is Necessary), a parent led community organization (under the guidance of One Love Global) that focused on the engagement of families with children ages 0-8.  She is raising her three sons to value community involvement as well with the belief that sowing into one’s community is not a chore but an obligation no matter the age. DeLisa is excited to tackle her new role as the Administrative Assistant for NCE and is looking forward to working with the many community organizations in our great city!
