Lisa M Sanchez is a human resources executive at a college. She leads a team dedicated to enriching the experiences and engagement for faculty and staff. Critical to this work is Sanchez’s direct work in diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI) and organizational culture.
Sanchez is the author of “Looking for Love in a Garbage Can. A Journey of Healing: How I Survived an Alcoholic Environment.” It chronicles her difficult childhood living in a violent and dysfunctional alcoholic environment. It’s a riveting tale of surviving her father’s drunken episodes, child molestation, and many dysfunctional relationships she would also encounter. Yet, her story also describes healing and a journey of forgiveness and self-discovery through self-empowerment.
She is the Founder and CEO of JustDigIn2It LLC, a life coach business created to help people who come from dysfunctional families and relationships break through their challenges and mental blocks so they can live more fulfilled and productive lives.
With this bandwidth of experience, Sanchez has served on numerous panels on DEI, organizational culture, the future of work as it relates to managing and leading during a pandemic, as well as appearances on television, radio and podcasts as she tells her mental health journey in her book.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, Sanchez attended Palisades High School. She received her bachelor’s degree in Communication Studies from California State University, Northridge, and a master’s degree in Organizational Management from the University of Phoenix.
