Lisa Thornton

Development Director


Lisa joined the Junior Achievement team in July 2018 as the Development Manager. After obtaining an Associate's Degree in Mechanical Engineering and working in that field for almost 5 years, Lisa decided she wasn't able to be as creative as she wanted. Lisa went back to school and received a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing from Wilmington University. After 5 years in the Marketing Agency environment, she decided she wanted to focus her efforts on just one organization, as opposed to many. Her desire to focus on a single organization paired with a desire to positively impact the lives of youth lead her to a career with Junior Achievement in July 2018. Lisa was then promoted to Development Director of Junior Achievement of the Eastern Shore in July of 2020. Lisa lives in Dagsboro, DE with her husband Dan, baby boy Leo, and their four fur babies. On the weekend, you can find her cooking extravagant meals, camping, or traveling with her family.
