January 13, 2015: Meet Lisa Rutkowski, a dedicated Habitat volunteer.
Lisa Rutowski, a Licensed Residential Realtor for Howard Hanna in Fox Chapel and a proud mother of two boys, brings her expertise and enthusiasm to us as a valued member of the Habitat marketing committee. Over the past year, Lisa has helped Habitat with preparing lots for sale, providing valuable insight on real estate matters, and helping to organize marketing committee events.
Years ago, Lisa had the oppurtunity to participate on a project with an employer. Through that experience, she became aware of some of the housing needs in the Pittsburgh area. Because Lisa believed in the mission of Habitat, she continued to follow Habitat's work; when she saw a marketing committee was being formed, she jumped on board. She says, "I'm a Realtor by profession, and I saw this as an oppurtunity to put my marketing skills and love for homes to further use. Homeownership provides stability and peace of mind and I am proud to be even a small part of Habitat's work in helping deserving families in the Allegheny County/Pittsburgh area."
Lisa most recently led Habitat's marketing committee in organizing a donation drive at the Guardian Storage Facility in Fox Chapel to benefit the Habitat ReStore. Lisa consistently goes beyond the call of duty in everything that she does. We value the time and energy that Lisa pours into Habitat and we are so grateful to have her working with us. Thanks for your dedication, Lisa!
