Lisa Brooks-Wilkins, mother of five children, has over 21 years of dedicated service in the Health & Human Services Industry. She began her journey with the birth of her first child who had numerous medical issues, requiring 24hr in-home nursing services. He succumbed to his illness at the tender age of nine.

Lisa began her journey anew when her then typically developing two year old child began showing symptoms of altered mental status. Eventually, due to an undiagnosed metabolic disorder, her daughter slipped into a coma and emerged with damage to the brain that affects her to this day.

School Health Services is something Lisa knows quite well and she is always available to lend a hand or advice on how school personnel can best met the needs of her child within the school environment.
