Lisa Ray

Communications Specialist

Kagin Commons, 102


Greetings! I am Lisa Ray, she/her, and I’m the communications specialist for Career Exploration.

I grew up in a small farming town and as a first-gen student I struggled mightily navigating how to do the college thing. I took out student loans and worked a variety of jobs until I graduated — ten years after I began.

I fell into working in higher education when I took a job at Hamline University that would allow me free classes for my master’s degree. I love higher ed because it has allowed me to work in very different roles in different departments over the years. And nothing beats being on a college campus!

When I’m on my own time, I like to learn about the field of geneology, study history, and read mysteries. #odaat
