"Lisa has been coaching Millburn Recreation Field Hockey for many years, not only coaching her own children's teams but also some years also coaching a second team when we needed a coach for a team without one," Assistant Superintendent of Recreation Neal Healy said. She was instrumental in helping start the third and fourth grade skills clinic, and for the last four years she has helped as a volunteer coordinator of the program evaluating players for team placement as well as once again helping coach our entry level clinic.

Healy continued, saying; "Her dedication to Millburn Recreation Field Hockey is second to none in the true sense of volunteerism as she continues to help out after her kids have aged out of the recreation program.  Over the years she has been a wonderful example to all the players she comes in contact with on and off the field."
