Lisa Kirves






I am inspired daily by the values of St. Vincent Early Learning Center and the amazing work being done to benefit our community. Not only do I feel blessed to be a part of the SVELC’s team, I get to be around children every day! I have always been one that navigates toward children when in a social gathering.


Children are smart, imaginative, funny, kind, compassionate, and innocent little human beings. Now, don’t get me wrong, there are days when I need to close my office door because, well, let’s just say they aren’t using their “inside voice” and I wouldn’t want to put that decimal in the wrong place! I enjoy working with numbers and getting those credits and debits to balance. I have a certificate in Business Administration from Ivy Tech Community College and love the challenge of learning new things.


Outside of SVELC, I love being a grandma. Aside from being a mom, it’s the best thing in the world! I love animals, enjoy riding my bike and being outdoors. One thing most people would find hard to believe about me is that I love to skeet shoot. And for any of our staff that is reading this…approve your timecard!
