Director of Administration, Co-Founder
Lisa Haleblian, a mom of 3, has spent the majority of her adult life raising her daughter and two sons with dedication and passion, even home schooling her son with special needs for 5 years through middle school. As a graduate of USC’s Gould School of Law, she worked in civil litigation for two firms in Los Angeles defending life and health insurance companies against bad faith claims.
She is managing director of KRE Consulting and teaches reading to special needs kids using the Wilson Reading System at The Frostig School in Pasadena. She has served in various capacities on school and nonprofit boards. Currently, she is treasurer of 58:7 Ministries, a nonprofit she co-founded with her brother to help exploited young girls living in the dumps of Managua, Nicaragua. Her passion for social justice, especially in the area of special needs, has immersed her into the autism community where she seeks to leverage her advocacy skills to promote the dignity and competence of children and adults on the autism spectrum. With her husband of 25 years, she helped spark The Spectrum Works in 2017, to bring the unique giftings of young adults on the spectrum to the corporate world by assisting them in finding and maintaining meaningful and gainful employment.
An avid reader, Lisa’s perfect day consists of lots of good coffee, pillows and blankets, and a bed strewn with all kinds of books. She loves experimenting in the kitchen with her son, Robert, watching anything British on Netflix with her daughter, Karina, and building lego trains and airplanes with her youngest, Ethan. Her hero is Mother Teresa and her life motto is “do for one what you wish you could do for everyone” (Andy Stanley).
