Content Manager

Lisa Watts

Lisa worked for years as a university and city magazine editor before jumping into nonprofit communications in the last decade. Most recently she served as communications director at North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics, a Durham, NC, public boarding school; and as senior strategic communications manager with Prevention Partners, a public health nonprofit based in Chapel Hill.

Lisa grew up in Atlanta, then Baltimore, then Boston, so the East Coast is truly her home. She loves running, bicycle touring, yoga, and hiking with her two dogs. She and her husband, Bob Malekoff, live in Durham, NC, and are the parents of two 20-somethings living in New York City.

In 2018, Lisa took a two-month leave from this job and, with her friend Dee Bird, biked the East Coast Greenway from Key West, FL, to Calais, ME. Ask her about the trip — it was a bucket-list dream come true!
