Dr. Lisa Sullivan was born and raised on the west bank of New Orleans and educated in the Jefferson Parish Public School System. In 1991, she received her B. S. in secondary mathematics education from Our Lady of Holy Cross College. While teaching middle school mathematics at Ellender Middle School, Dr. Sullivan received her master's degree in teaching mathematics from Loyola University and began to teach mathematics courses as an adjunct instructor at OLHCC. In 1997, Sullivan entered the doctoral program in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of New Orleans and started a full-time faculty position in the Education Department at OLHCC. Sullivan is now the Chair of the Education Department and a full Professor of Education. Preparing pre-service teachers to be the best teachers they can be is Sullivan's primary purpose. Educating the hearts and minds, as Blessed Basil Moreau taught us, is the foundation of teacher and leader training programs at OLHCC.
