Lisa Muldrew has been a part of the Pittman Park staff on and off since 2016. She currently serves as Director of Traditional Music and can be found at the Traditional Service each Sunday, leading the congregational hymns. In her role, she is also the director of the chancel choir and coordinates special music and performances. Lisa has deep roots at Pittman Park since her parents, George and Sheri Sterling are also members. Lisa agreed to answer a few questions to help us get to know her a little better.
What did you want to do for a job when you were a child?
I always wanted to be a teacher, and I love music, so I was fortunate to be able to pursue what I truly wanted to do. I enjoy performing, but I enjoy teaching and helping others to be able to reach their goals, even more.
What is your favorite thing about working at Pittman Park?
The congregation at Pittman Park is very friendly and encouraging. It seems that people here have a sincere desire to reach out to the community. The members of the music ministry (choir and handbells) are a talented and dedicated group, and a lot of fun to be with! The staff is supportive of each other and their respective ministries. That was more than one thing…
What other jobs have you had outside Pittman Park?
I have taught school, private music lessons, taught camps, and directed shows for 36 years.
What is your superpower?
My superpower is that I am a “glass half full” kind of a person. Although many times, we cannot change our circumstances, we can change how we respond. I try to take obstacles, and turn them into opportunities.
