19 Aug Lisa Mougin – Furnish a Future
Lisa’s life took a significant turn in 2017 when she made the decision to take a sabbatical from her career in financial services in Denver, Colorado and move to Barcelona, Spain with her husband and two children. Driven by her favorite quote from Mahatma Gandhi “Be the change you wish to see in this world” and motivated by her family’s experience with the difficulties of settling into a new country, Lisa partnered with the American School of Barcelona to create the Furnish a Future program. Furnish a Future supports successful resettlement of displaced people and refugees by providing them with gently-used furniture so they may begin creating a new home. They rely on donated furniture. While living in Spain, Lisa has also honed her skills as a travel agent, taking advantage of living in Europe for her family to explore as many new cities as possible!
