Introducing Kiwanis International staff

Lisa Pyron was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, and attended Ball State University to earn her bachelor’s degree in journalism and public relations. She has experience working with various associations, and attended the 1984 Kiwanis International Convention in Phoenix, Arizona, as the talent agent who made travel arrangements for Jim Nabors.

Today, Lisa is a Member Engagement Specialist at Kiwanis International. She manages multiple websites for Key Club International, Builders Club and K-Kids; coordinates contest and award judging and recognition; coordinates renewal kit materials for K-Kids and Builders Club; and develops resources that encourage community building, bully prevention and mindful education.

“According to the newest research, conducting community service with a group of people improves the overall well-being of the individuals doing the good deeds,” Lisa says. “I truly feel that I’m making a difference working at Kiwanis. I’m helping young people become more accepting, caring, compassionate people. Who wouldn’t want to do this? I have my dream job.”

Lisa is a Kiwanis member and a K-Kids Kiwanis advisor. She enjoys spending time with her husband Dennis, son Maxx, daughter Kelsey, and family pets: a great dane, four cats and five rats. She is passionate about K-Kids, mindfulness, advocating for individuals struggling with mental illness and suicide prevention.

Lisa’s hobbies include playing the ukulele and guitar, crocheting, origami, watching international TV programs, listening to audiobooks and thrift store shopping. She is pictured above with her good friend Marty, who plays the ukulele with her every year at college gatherings.
