Meet Lisa Hoag!
I served in the Air Force for 11 years and transplanted to Boise. I attended the University of Maryland, RAF Chicksands, UK where I obtained an associate degree in Leadership Management. I attended Boise State University where I obtained a Paralegal Certificate and a Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies with a minor in Human Resource Management. I work for the state of Idaho for 27 years and for 17 of those years in my current position as a paralegal for the Idaho Transportation Department. I found my dream job! I volunteer for local and national non-profit organizations to meet some interesting people going through their journey. In 2016 I started volunteering with Wyakin Foundation as a Special Project Analyst. I am currently volunteering as a community mentor to Warrior Ashton LaNier.
I love working with fellow veterans and helping them identify their potential for their dream job. When I left the military I floundered and had no one to help guide me into a professional career or how to figure out now what? With Wyakin Foundation all veterans have a place to ask “now what?, how do I get there?, and who can I call when I get stuck?” I love learning each Warrior’s story and utilizing the skills from Wyakin Professional Development Seminars to help fellow veterans find their dream jobs.
