She is an active member of the faith community at St. Matthew’s church in Goffstown, where she learned about the work of Crispin’s House, and hopes to find a way to help support youth and families in this community. Deb is also the proud mother of an adult son and a daughter who is a senior at Goffstown High School.
Lisa Horne grew up in Goffstown and returned here to raise her family. She received her Bachelors of Arts degree in psychology from UNH and her Masters of Art in counseling psychology from Notre Dame College. She has been a school psychologist for 13 years, dedicating her life’s work to understanding exceptional learners and assisting staff in developing unique and individual plans for them.
