Alisa Jones may not be a high-powered executive, but she is a leader, nonetheless.
The neonatal nurse with more than 30 years of experience seeks to inspire women to be their best every day, regardless of their role.
“Women can be leaders wherever they are,” says Jones, explaining for her, being a leader means remaining behind the scenes cheering on others.
Jones’ passion for inspiring women in leadership began 10 years ago when she enrolled in Called to Lead, a two-year leadership development program. She is now teaching other women what she has learned as a facilitator with the organization.
But she is also a leader in her workplace, and finds it fulfilling to see others – especially younger women – get over their insecurities to find success in whatever situation they find themselves.
Her husband, Dan Jones, calls his wife an amazing, high-capacity leader.
For Alisa, mentoring others is a way of life.
“I am trying to live out my values by helping others learn,” she says. “Investing in people is intrinsic to who I am.”
