Lisa Smith Loy: Outstanding Professional/Business Woman

By Ben Arnold MPH, PhD

Don't we have a great little town? Not because of buildings and things but because of our great people -- like this one -- Lisa Smith Loy. I add Smith to remember Bobby Smith, her dad, a great guy.

Lisa is important to us both personally and professionally -- she does all my tax returns, some a bit difficult. I used to go to louisville and pay twice as much for half the work.

Lisa is always in the trenches with me working on Spectrum Care, helping in many ways.

I could call her COO, comptroller, vp, director of personnel. It's a difficult operation full of bureaucracy and wrapped in regulations.

Lisa is very smart, a quick study, she learns new subjects quickly, she is good with people, reads them well and holds them to perform, she works hard.

Lisa is the only person that I can email at 10pm and get a response, that night. Lisa could be the CEO of a large corporation, she has all the skills, good judgement along with management skills, and underlying all this intelligence, hard work, talents and skills -- she is grounded by a broad base of character and integrity, the most important characteristic.

Lisa and dennis are great friends. When Ellen asked me, I was pleased to come present this award to Lisa.
