In May 2024, Lisa Dominguez will become the new Paths for Families CEO. She first joined the agency in 2006 as a contract social worker, completing home studies, post-placements and providing clinical services in our Washington, DC office. She left after two years and returned in January 2022 as the Chief Program Officer. As longtime founder and CEO Janice Goldwater began to contemplate her retirement, it quickly became apparent the depth and breadth of Lisa’s experience and her positive leadership style would be an asset to Paths for Families at the highest level.
Lisa’s 25+ year career has centered around serving children and families, almost half of which has been spent working exclusively in the adoption, foster care, and kinship community. She has extensive leadership experience, boundless energy, and we know she has good taste because if she wasn’t doing this work, she might be working at Trader Joe’s!
Since re-joining Paths for Families in 2022, Lisa said she has learned so much from Janice and the team, and now we want you to learn more about her! Meet Lisa Dominguez:
