Lisa Preston
Manager of Quench
I’m on the board because I love our great town and love supporting our local community. I firmly believe in entrepreneurship and grew up learning my family’s business. I know all about the blood sweat and tears that go into all that’s done and I want to support the hard working men and women in our community that have dreams, goals and roots in our hometown. It’s mainly our local businesses that support our community, not majorly the corporate owned businesses.
