Lisa Temple

I have only been with the company since December 8th 2014 and I can say that I feel very blessed to be part of such a wonderful team, and to have the opportunity doing a job that I absolutely love and am very suited for. My job incorporates advertising, marketing, problem solving, strong communication skills, socializing, community collaboration, empathy, compassion, positive outlook, and continually building a positive environment. These are challenges that come very natural to me as I am naturally a very positive outgoing individual with a great sense of humor and a strong work ethic, all of which I feel is very important in my role.

My educational background is in Psychology and Sociology at Carleton University and Business Marketing at Algonquin College in Ottawa. After graduating I started my career working in sales and Marketing for a major innovative computer software company McLeod Bishops Systems located in Ottawa. Upon relocation to Prescott I began a twenty year tenure with DuPont Maitland site. Due to plant closure I returned to school and I have graduated from the (SSW) Social Service Worker program from St.Lawrence College maintaining Deans List status. Also in the meantime I help manage the Bridge Waters Inn our twelve room motel located in Johnstown.

I was the youngest of six children, born and raised in the wonderful safe community of Prescott Ontario. I presently live with my husband in Johnstown Ontario just outside of Prescott. I have three grown children the eldest is my daughter and two younger boys. In my spare time I like to renovate, do yoga, cook and entertain family and friends. I have always placed a high value on spending quality time with family and friends. I believe one of the most important things in life are healthy happy relationships.
