Lisa Grover, Ph.D.

| Senior Director, State Advocacy

About Lisa Grover, Ph.D.

Lisa Grover, Ph.D., joined the National Alliance as senior director of state advocacy and support in 2011. In this capacity, she works with local, state and national partners to improve public charter school laws or enact new ones. Most recently, she led the effort to pass the 2017 public charter school law in Kentucky.

She first came to the charter school movement as the lead founder of one of the first rural charter schools in New Mexico, which is nationally ranked as one of the best high schools in the state. A former high school Spanish teacher, she taught in the Los Angeles Unified School District as well as in Mexico, Ecuador, and China.

She lives in New Mexico with her husband and two college-age children who both attended charter schools. She and her rescue dog, Odin, are a certified pet therapy team and love visiting with children and their state-appointed advocates when they have the opportunity. Lisa is an avid student of hot vinyasa yoga and also enjoys hiking, high-desert gardening and spending time with her family. She holds a Doctorate Degree in Romance Languages and a Masters Degree in Linguistics and Multi-Cultural Education.
