TWO MOMS ON A MISSION…
Lisa Leask and Mindy Allen were living somewhat parallel lives, but neither of them knew that it would take a chance meeting to realize that together they were meant to accomplish great things. Lisa was living the life that many moms of three girls do running between board meetings, the gym, the grocery store and being a full-fledged ‘dance mom’. All the while, just one bridge away Mindy was living a similar life with three children of her own juggling similar responsibilities that seemingly all working moms must tackle on a daily basis. It’s safe to say that both Lisa and Mindy lead somewhat hectic lives.
Despite constant work and family commitments, Lisa and Mindy have both spent the better part of the last twenty years volunteering their time for local worthy causes within the special needs community, teaching, educating and advocating for children to reduce the opportunity gap. Through their shared experiences of being special needs moms, they both had their own watershed moments realizing that there is a plethora of information which needs to be disseminated to families and caregivers so they can navigate their unique journey in this life.
After close to a year of scheduling and rescheduling times to meet, when Lisa and Mindy were finally able to sit down across a table from one another, share their stories and their ideas, it was immediately apparent what needed to happen. They felt compelled to create a way to share the information they each had painstakingly compiled over 20 years of seeking out pediatricians, various therapists, specialists, counselors and the vast array of services geared towards parenting, early intervention and specific special needs. They joined forces to design the product that will empower its users to research their options to make the best choices. Today, through Lisa and Mindy’s shared vision to have their mission make a significant impact on their community has come full circle. That dream is finally becoming a reality. That reality is “Resource Connector”.
