Lisa Keosouphanh

Grant Manager

Lisa Keosouphanh started at United Way of Kern County in February of 2019 as an intern from San Joaquin Valley College. By the end of 2019, she had gone from intern to volunteer, then to the role of Education Specialist. In 2020, she began diving into the world of grants and fundraising. She sought out opportunities to increase UWKC’s capacity to help her struggling community, soon earning the title of Grant Writer. Lisa strives to reach those most in need in her community with hopes of connecting them to resources and opportunities that will enhance their quality of life in the areas of Education and Health and ultimately result in Home Stability.
