Lysa relocated to the “Quiet Corner” in 1991, and has 33 years of personal insurance experience, 22 of which are at Archambault Insurance Associates where she has earned CT Magazine’s Five Star Insurance Professional Award for the last 5 years. She was President of the Insurance Professionals of Eastern CT, and is currently member of the Fraternal Order of Blue Goose for insurance professionals.
Her volunteering experience mirrored her daughter, Angela’s interests -Girl Scouts, St. Mary’s School committees & KHS Band Boosters. When her daughter left for college, she felt a parental, as well as volunteer void, so she became an Elk. There she wears many hats on both the Lodge and District level as a Grant Writer, as well as Chair for Community Service, State Major Projects with CT Children’s Medical Center, and Fundraising. She is a Past Exalted Ruler, and currently serves as the Lodge Chaplain.
It was through grant writing that she became aware of the needs in our community by meeting people from the Parents Resource Center, Nurturing Families, IHSP, Camp Quinebaug, the Young Marines etc., and that is how she became involved with the Family Advocacy Board and IHSP.
“I am a firm believer that someone can’t do everything, but everyone can so something, and I look forward to meeting even more members of the volunteering community, as well as those that we serve”.
Lysa resides in Dayville with her Dad, and has a daughter and grandson.
