Lisa Coates and her family relocated from Pike Creek, Delaware in 2017.
Lisa was active in her local UU congregation, in which she began her journey as a religious education leader. Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Lisa graduated from Webster University with a master’s degree in teaching early childhood education.
As a wife of Chris and mother of three daughters, Carly, Caden,, and Luella, Lisa is very involved in educational and family services in our community. She is a volunteer for Girl Scouts of Central Illinois, 4H of Blue Mound and Special Blessings of Decatur.
Along with leading the Religious Education program for UUFD, Lisa also teaches parent, child classes for a local preschool.
Lisa is eager to work alongside the families of UUFD. Her plans include activities focusing on creative arts, family involvement and community outreach.
