Lisa Henry

Lisa was born in North Bay and joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 2007 as an Aerospace Control Operator.  She currently works at 22 Wing North Bay for 51 Aerospace Control and Warning (Operational Training) Squadron.

Lisa had always been involved in her parish but mostly volunteering with youth groups and one day decided it was time to join the CWL, a group her sister-in-law’s were a part of.  Coming out of church one day, she saw a dear friend she hadn’t seen in years, who was selling raffle tickets for their CWL bazaar. She chatted with her for a bit and then was invited to help sell tickets and the rest was history.  One person’s warm, welcoming invitation was all it took to be bitten by the CWL bug.  From there, she was invited to sit on her home council executive at the Pro-Cathedral of the Assumption, North Bay as Resolutions & Legislation Committee Chairperson. Following that, she stayed on for consecutive terms as Corresponding Secretary, Membership & Organization and eventually President, then Past-President.  At the Diocesan level she has served as Communications chairperson and North Bay Regional chairperson from 2015-2017.

She has been married for 29 wonderful years to the love of her life, Arthur Henry.  She loves cooking, travelling, but most of all, spending time with friends and family.  She also sits as Vice-Chair on the Board of Directors for the Military Family Resource Centre, a post she is passionate about.
